Winemaker's Notes

Made using only the very best French and American barrels, the wine spent approximately 22 months in new and one year old oak. Grapes for Penny's Hill Shiraz are picked over different days. The vineyard has soils that become progressively deeper to the south of the block. Grapes show very different characters over these different soil depths. The winery takes advantage of these differences by keeping the grapes separate through the winemaking process, allowing Ben Riggs to have access to various components when it comes to blending.
