Kirrihill E.B.`s The Peacemaker Shiraz 2013
The Peacemaker Shiraz comes from one of Clare’s most famous vineyards - “Tullymore Vineyard”. Sourced from the best 20 rows in the north western corner of the single block within the Tullymore Vineyard, the fruit was painstakingly tasted daily to ensure the maximum flavour ripeness was achieved. Grown on granite and loam over red fertile soils finishing with a deep red clay in the lower 2 meters of the profile allows this vineyard to exist with very little irrigation. The resultant block produces small berries and few bunches on short exposed canes. This allows concentration of the flavours and helps balance flavour ripeness with physiological ripeness. The vineyard itself is located in the North eastern foothills of the Clare Valley. This vineyard has produced medal winning wines ever since the first crop. East facing slopes with an elevation of 450 meters makes this one of the best sites in Clare to grow Shiraz.
