#74 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008
Hand selected from 40 year old vines on our Tatachilla Road vineyard, Uncut Shiraz requires very little intervention. Minimally pruned vines; open fermentation; gentle pressing; and minimal fining and filtration - these are our maxims for producing Uncut Shiraz. Balance in wine cannot be manufactured - it occurs naturally! In this, our 9th vintage as winemakers we have again achieved this balance. The synergy between fruit, oak, acid and tannin in the 2006 Uncut is seamless.
