2022 Shiraz
Harcourt North
A very cool, granite strewn vineyard that produces vibrant, fresh, incredibly textured wines.

The fruit comes from our vineyard in Harcourt North, Central Victoria. Harcourt is a cooler pocket located in the Bendigo GI, and this vineyard sits up high above the Harcourt Valley on a granitic outcrop. The vineyard is approx 500m ASL and is one of the highest, and coolest, vineyards in the Bendigo GI. The vineyard soils are composed of granitic slabs and boulders, interspersed with sand. 

We have been farming this vineyard ourselves for a few years now, using organic practices. The vineyard has taken a lot of work to get it back to production, after being left fallow for years. Located atop a windy hill means disease pressure is super low, we only need to spray a few times each year with copper sulfate. The last two seasons have seen a great amount of organic matter produced in the midrows, courtesy of a couple of wet springs. That has resulted in an improvement in the soil structure, creating some loamy topsoil. No herbicide has been used in this vineyard for at least 5 years.

This vineyard produces driven, tight, mineral cool climate shiraz, and we are very excited for its future.

This wine is inspired by some of the savoury shiraz from Northern Rhone, and is fermented as 100% whole bunches. Aged in old barriques and puncheons. Bottled with 45ppm of SO2.

Review by Mike Bennie 15 June 2024

From Harcourt North, a site farmed by Trutta. A lot of work in the past four years to resurrect the site. It is 100% whole bunch for five weeks, then destemmed (geez that would be messy!), then finished fermenting long after that.

Wildly spicy, white peppery, touches of mezcal too in a mix of mulberry, cranberry, blackcurrant and sweet earthiness. Cool and spicy to taste with a big flourish of white pepper but it all fits so well in the more brooding, black fruit character yet riding on this glossy flow of briny mineral-stained acidity. Wonderful. Good chew of fine, tight tannin, a lingering spicy finish. Lighter weight to medium weight, cool climate writ large, done so very well.
