Expert Reviews

VINTAGE:The 2014 growing season was a testing but rewarding one in the Clare Valley. Winter rains were solid but a very warm Summer saw day time temperatures often in excess of 35’C. A predicted rain event in February had wine producers on edge but it proved to be the vintage saviour with the soaking giving vines a much needed drink whilst resulting in little to no disease pressure. Early signs suggest wines of a similar quality and style to the lauded 2012 season.

VINEYARD:The majority of the fruit is from our Yertabulti Vineyard which is on an elevated site east of the town of Clare. The shiraz vines on the 'Red loam soils' soils are naturally very low yielding and always display

outstanding intensity and varietal character.

WINEMAKING:The wine was made with a responsive winemaking approach to preserve fruit purity. Fermentation in Potter (static) and open fermenters, with gentle extraction of flavours and texture through pumping over twice a day and hand plunging. Ferment lasted around 7-10 days. The skins were then pressed and wine allowed to settle before being transferred to barrel for 12 months.

CELLARING:This wine will reward ageing for up to 7 years.

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2014 Knappstein Shiraz displays typical Clare Valley style and texture. Spicy highlights with red and black cherry aromatics lead into an energetic palate with flavours of spice red fruits and blackberries supported by a savoury, baked meat like element. Firm but fine tannins and oak - playing a purely supporting role - provide framework for a textural and lengthy finish.
