TASTING NOTES
A scintillating Shiraz, playing on the contrast between rich forest fruit and the brightness of pepper and floral aroma. There is plenty of muscle and grip here but the balance is so good it goes almost unnoticed. Brilliant, evocative wine from Victoria.

The Reviews: “A lengthy apology on the label for the use of varying amounts of whole bunches paves the way for the disclosure of 80% in this shiraz. It is more elegant than the '14 wines, albeit with the particular savoury/stemmy nuances of whole bunches, something that will polarise opinions on the mouthwatering impact of the inclusion.” 95 points, James Halliday

“Firm and tight with tangy fruit slicing through. Quite a deal of glossy, cedary, fresh wood too. The commanding side of cool climate shiraz. Roasted nuts, twists of herbs, dry liquorice and deep black cherry. Broody at the moment. Fully robed. It needs more than a decant; it needs a few years.” 94 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

WINERY

Following in the tradition, the Indra Block delivers another wine of exceptional quality. Made from very low yields in 100% new French oak with minimal intervention.

To stalk or not to stalk that is the question? Whole bunch fermentation in red winemaking. It’s a hot topic. As in many winemaking trends the arguments move like a pendulum driven by a mix of technology and fashion.

PRODUCER
At Lethbridge our decision to destem or to use whole bunch is largely vineyard driven with some terroirs consistently producing wines of greater interest, complexity and textural smoothness or silkiness that is rarely seen without the use of stems. The ‘Indra’ block at the Lethbridge vineyard is one such site.
