Fechner Vineyard Shiraz

  • Fechner Vineyard Shiraz


    Owned and farmed by Graeme and Michael Fechner at Moculta in the Eden Valley. Sitting on the edge of a marble seam, the ancient earth is a mixture of grey schist, integrated with shallow limestone and red clay. Packed with minerality. Hand-picked in the cool of the morning and gently destemmed to preserve whole berries. Fermented in an open top tank with a light hand plunge two-three times daily. Basket pressed directly to oak with 3 weeks’ barrel fermentation followed by 10 months’ maturation in oak - 80% French, 20% American, 15% new oak. Complex and intriguing as always and classically Eden – it opens, grows and evolves with every glass.
