|In this digital world, we remember the craft of the postal telegraphists.|
For decades their Morse signals, dexterously delivered across Australia’s great telegraph line, connected us with the world and helped to save countless lives. We honour the Morse Codian Fraternity with this collection of gourmet produce and fine wines.
The Morse Code Shiraz is a fruit-driven wine with minimal oak to allow the fruit flavours and regional characters to be at the forefront. The wine shows fruit characters of blueberries and cherries with hints of liquorice and touches of spice and pepper. The palate is rich and full with a nice depth of berry fruit, toasted spice and a touch of mint, with a fleshy mid palate and a soft, round finish.
Yield: 4 tonnes per acre
Oak profile: A small proportion of the wine finished ferment in barrel, but the majority was unoaked to allow the fruit to shine.
Terroir: The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Estate’s Padthaway vineyards. The vines are in various types of soil, including red loam, black loam and deep sand over limestone.
