Paul Osicka Majors Creek Vineyard Shiraz 2012

Impressive Heathcote shiraz from Paul Osicka. Made from vines planted in the 1950s. Fermented in 15 separate parcels, with different winemaking approaches taken to each batch. Natural ferments, whole bunches, extended time on skins and the like. “The ferments were pressed together and batched based on specific soil type in the vineyard. They were then matured in 30% new French oak (hogsheads) for about 16 months prior to blending.”
