2022 Polygon No. 1

2022 Polygon No. 1

A savoury and intense expression of Shiraz from 6 rows of 70 year old vines. There are charcuterie notes with cassis and white pepper. The mid palate volume and intensity is impressive, with a scratchy tannin making its weight seamless and the texture captivating. This wine will continue to improve with age and will reward long cellaring.

Vineyard Notes
This 0.4 hectare polygon is part of the Old Quarter of the vineyard and was split into four distinct parcels by our terroir specialist, Pedro Parra, during his second visit in 2018. Three parcels of vines sit on heavily fractured micaceous schist. One small area of 0.097 hectares in the middle lacks this schist content and is excluded from the ferment. NASAA certified organic and biodynamic. 1505kg was handpicked on the 15th of March and brought to the winery just 20 metres away. 50% whole bunches were hand bucketed into concrete tulip and fermented with indigenous yeast. After two weeks on skins, Polygon 1 was basket pressed, before going through malolactic fermentation. The wine was then racked to concrete egg for 9 months of maturation before bottling in August 2023.

Full and bright ruby-red core, vibrant purple shines through the rim. Blueberry, hot gravel and pencil shaving aromatics. Deep and dense core of black and blue fruits but the driving force of this wine is its savoury elements, dried herbs, black pepper, dark stones and dried blood all fill the senses with their intensity. Tannins are powerful and drying, ensuring the wine drives incredibly long and deep, almost never ending.
