It has a bouquet of dark berries and cherries

Sommelier's advice: Ageing period: from 5 to 10 years.
Our soils are derived from Cambrian period basaltic rock of 500/600 million years age. They are quite rare in the world because of their great age, particularly in Australia. Here in Heathcote they are unusually deep (up to 4 metres), rusty red coloured, well drained, gravelly loams on undulating hillsides, with good moisture retention capabilities.
Organically grown grapes are picked by hand, completely de-stemmed and go through maceration for around 6 weeks, during which time there is minimal intervention in order to allow the grapes from each individual paddock to express their individual terroir.
The wine is then transferred into small French oak barriques, 20% of which are new, (without any racking, fining or filtration) for around 14 months. Georgia’s Paddock shiraz is predominately aged in American oak.
