Enjoyed a lovely visit to the winery. This is a very interesting wine made in a very interesting process.
"Our third edition of The Magician has seen a slight change in style with this edition Pinot Noir making up 60% of the blend and the balance 40% Shiraz. 30 % of the Shiraz grapes were hand harvested and kiln dried and 20% of the Pinot were hand harvested and kiln dried. The grapes were crushed and fermented on the skins for 18 days. After pressing the wine was moved into 1 year old French barriques and aged for 12 months in barriques." (Reif Estate Winemaker's notes)
