Quandong Farm Shiraz is a single vineyard wine that aims to highlight the intensity and brightness of fruit grown using biodynamic techniques. Our farming practices are designed to produce wines of intensity, but also with layers of texture, flavour and interest for the consumer. We think this wine exhibits these characteristics and provides both concentration and flavour and a certain delicacy, rather than simple raw power.

This wine can be enjoyed young, however, careful cellaring for 5–20 years will be rewarded.
The grapes were hand picked and selector harvested at optimum flavour and sugar equilibrium. 40% of the harvest was used as whole bunches while the remainder was delicately destemmed and fermented using 100% indigenous (wild) yeast . The small batch open ferments were carefully plunged and pumped over for 10-15 days to extract colour, flavour and tannin structure. The ferments were pressed to new and mature French oak puncheons, where they were nurtured for 12 months prior to blending and bottling.
REVIEW (2021 VINTAGE):
92pt - Deep purple/red colour, with a fragrant floral and peppery bouquet, suggestions of whole-bunch adding a subtle vegetal note. The palate is very sweet at the heart and indeed juicy, the finish chiming in with drying tannins restoring order to the lushness of the fruit. A very smart shiraz.
