2015 Poonawatta The Four Corners Shiraz

Vineyard: All the vineyards in the Four Corners range are assessed separately to ensure each parcel of fruit delivers its best individual expression of the Eden Valley region. The hero of this blend is the Shiraz grapes. 

SeasonThe 2015 vintage will be one to remember. The season started well with above average early winter rains that filled the soil profile and dams, however it was dry from then on. Temperatures were above average in spring allowing the vines to get off to a strong growing season. Summer was generally mild with the exception of a few days of extreme relieved by thirty millimetres of rain in January.
