The Naimanya vineyard sits high in the tiny sub-region of Flaxman’s Valley on soils of sandy loam, gravel and quartz over clay. At 520m elevation it is one of the highest Shiraz vineyards in South Australia. A dry winter and warm spring drove an early harvest despite average summer temperatures. Picked on 21st March, 75% de-stemmed to open fermenter, 25% whole-bunch fermented in puncheon with 31 days maceration, matured for 20 months in French oak (10% new).
