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.

We've future proofed our 'Grounds' range with micro-chip technology to guarantee its wine authenticity.

In an Australian first, via a collaboration with YPB group limited, an Australian-based brand protection and consumer engagement company the technology - NFC Vintail - sees a microchip with rolling code technology embedded onto the product label of each bottle of our 'Grounds' range of wines.

Powered by YPB's Connect platform, the individually-coded Vintails are interactive via smart phone 'tap and go'. Using the latest Apple iPhone and Google Android releases, or by using an equivalent NFC reader application, the technology is launched by physically tapping a compatible phone to the NFC Vintail.

Simply tap your phone against the micro-chip to authenticate the wine you're about to enjoy.
