WINEMAKING:
After selective hand picking by block the fruit was taken to the winery where it was gently de-stemmed. De-stemmed fruit was added to open top fermenters and cold soaked for five to seven days to enable early development of colour and flavour. The fruit was left to macerate for a further 14 days to maximise flavour, before it was pressed. From here the free run wine was aged in French oak 300L barrels for 12 months ahead of bottling. Following bottling this organic wine benefited from 24 months maturing in the Giesen cellar allowing the development of complexity and a silken palate.

ORGANIC VINEYARDS: Every attention is lavished upon Giesen organic vines which are hand tended with support from a specially imported Italian Geier ‘Crawler’ which helps take care of vine weeding and trimming. Weighing just over a tonne, and with a width of 1.1m, the crawler has less downward pressure than a human footprint! This special machine supports Giesen’s minimal compaction philosophy for its high density, organic vineyards - ensuring nutrient rich soil which guarantees premium, full flavoured fruit.

Match this delicious organic Syrah with good friends and family, a little kind hearted banter and a BBQ ribeye or eye fillet served on a bed of roasted seasonal vegetables.
