The quality of fruit picked was exceptional in 2009. At bud burst, the organically loaded soils were close to fully moist, providing an excellent start to the growing season.
Hand picking is the only way these grapes can be harvested. Following picking, we ferment the fruit in an open fermenter - monitoring temperature and gently hand plunging twice daily. Once pressed, we put away the pumps and gravity feed the wine into barrel. This is where the EJ rests in the 100% French Oak Barriques for 22 months. We then gravity feed the wine into tank ready for bottling. Once bottled, we cellar the EJ Shiraz for another 18 months prior to release.
