Wild Olive Organic McLaren Vale Shiraz grapes have been sourced from our Warboys Organic Vineyard and a long term grower. Warboys provides the powerful base for the wine with the growers fruit contributing elegance and finesse.
This hand crafted wine has been made in the Angove small batch winery. After being
gently destemmed, the largely whole berries were cold soaked for three days before
being allowed to slowly warm with the fermentation initiated by the wild yeast of the
winery and then pumped over twice daily to coax colour, flavour and tannin. Once dry
the finished ferment was basket pressed with the free run and pressing fraction kept
separate. Maturation for 12 month in seasoned French oak preceded a careful barrel
selection and blending process with minimal fining and filtration prior to bottling.
Deep inky purple. Pepper and ripe berry aromas abound, followed by a lively, aromatic and vibrant palate, with a lush smooth finish that engulfs the senses. Winery
