2017 La La

I n 7th release. In homage to Guigal’s famous La Mouline. La Turque and La Landonne – my vision for this wine is to attempt to age a single vineyard Heathcote Shiraz in 100% new oak for a minimum of 36 months (2017 = 46 months). It is small batch from a single barrel (500L) of shiraz and is only ever released in great vintages with a minimum of 6 years of age. The 2017 comes from the Greenstone vineyard (east to west planting and 4545 vines p/h). Made using shiraz clone PT10 with 100% whole bunch, wild yeast fermentation and malolactic fermentation. Open fermenter, no pumping, hand plunged, 34 days on skins before pressing. Only free run used, also unfined and unfiltered with min. 2 years in bottle before release.

Pair with: Rich gamey meat.

Rich gamey meat pairs beautifully with Shiraz. One of my favourite dishes of all time is perfectly cooked pigeon with roast Jerusalem artichokes. Wash that down with a bottle of La La and you’ll be in heaven!




Oh No! You might spill your wine, please hold upright.
