    Winemaking

    The 2017 Barossa 'The Westing' was vinified through the historic 1888 Gravity Cellar. Built into the hillside on a series of terraces, gravity guides the flow of fruit down through the winery to deliver gentle extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. The Shiraz was fermented in open fermenters and matured with moderate French oak influence. 'The Westing' Shiraz was fermented in open fermenters between 18 and 28 degrees where they are monitored daily over two by twelve-hour intervals, determined by taste but to maximise appropriate extraction of colour, flavour and tannins. The wine was matured in French oak hogsheads, of which 30% is new, and then bottled in February 2019.

    Maturation

    16 months in French oak hogsheads, medium toast, new and seasoned
