2014 Thank God It’s Friday
Both the Shiraz and Cabernet were grown on our Heysen Estate Vineyard using organic practices. The Shiraz came from multiple blocks across our estate, but from the younger 1997 plantings, while the Cabernet came from the original 1997 plantings.
Fermented using wild yeast in small open fermenters, this wine was foot stomped to allow gentle extraction of colour, flavour and tannins. After 10 days on skins the wine was basket pressed and put to old French and American oak for 18 months. The wine was blended and bottled with no fining and no filtration.
This classic Barossa blend shows aromas of red fruits, cassis, fresh sage and freshly turned earth. The palate is light and fresh, bursting with fruit and finishing smooth with lingering tannins drawing the wine across the palate. This wine is a modern take on a traditional Barossa blend, and is perfect for any day, not just a Friday!
