Curator Wine Co Hamlets Shiraz is a blend from different sub regions or “Hamlets” where we grow and buy grapes from across the Barossa Valley. Predominantly from our Marananga vineyard front block of Shiraz (two different clones) along with Shiraz from a 50 year old Vine Vale vineyard. There also is small amounts from Stonewell and Hallet Valley.
Each parcel was picked separately and destemmed into open-top tank for fermentation. It is chilled down then allowed to warm up and inoculated with yeast to start the ferment. All parcels were fermented separately. The ferment was gently hand plunged two to three times daily for approximately 7-8 days. Then basket pressed and all blocks blended together and filled to tank to complete natural Malolactic fermentation. Once completed the wine was transferred to only seasoned USA & French oak where it stayed for approximately 12-14 months maturation in barrel.
Hamlets Shiraz is made in a complex but juicy style that is true to the house style. It is extremely easy to drink though complex enough to be able to cellar for many years of future enjoyment.
