Winemaker’s Comments:
MINIMAL INTERVENTION
The Plowman vineyard is a meticulously hand manicured small vineyard with mature Shiraz vines that consistently produce superbly concentrated fruit. The cuttings were taken in the late 1960s from the original Penfold vineyard in Magill, clone unknown. They were dry-reared and planted in 1999, a rare viticultural practice. Even in a higher-yielding year, such as 2017, this wine still performed above average. Fermented in open fermenters with some extra time on skins and gently drained and basket pressed to capture the amazing colour and tannins from this viticultural practice. True Barossa Valley guts and glory.
