2015 Shock Value
This blend is made up of fruit sourced from our Heysen Estate, and from another vineyard in Western Barossa. The blend is a secret, so I don’t want to give away too much information, but I will tell you that the vineyards are all managed organically, and they are some extremely good vineyards.
All of our red wines are fermented with wild yeast in small open fermenters. This blend was put together after each of the components was fermented separately, some of which were fermented in old concrete fermenters, while the others were in stainless steel. Each parcel of fruit varied with the amount of time on skins, ranging from 7-18 days before they were basket pressed to tank. A portion of this wine was aged in old oak for 6 month, while the remainder stayed in stainless steel tank to retain freshness.
A mystery blend of red varieties makes up this exciting wine. Designed to be smashable, this is a really aromatic, light, vibrant style of red wine that is perfect drinking all on it’s own. Having said that, this also goes really well with pizza or a BBQ with friends. We would love for you to take a photo of the label and share it on social media- #whistlerwines or tag us @whistlerwines. See if you can guess which varieties make up this blend.

Drink it now, but if you like more secondary characters, it will age gracefully up to 2021.
