Foot crushing, boots on, is the practice, and for the most part all wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered. Parcels are inoculated and vinified in traditional open vats, treated to an extended maceration and gentle transfer through a hand operated basket press before maturation in a combination of French and American oaks.
 
Deep red colour. Aromas of chocolate and plum, lifted baking spice, mullberry and ground black pepper. An array of black berry and cherry flavours kept vital by bright morello acidity. Seamless integration between good fruit, velvet tannins and fine oak, a smoky depth and lick of vanilla spice linger right through to the savoury finish.

When Braydun Hill was original planted to vines, only one grape variety was considered, that was Shiraz. A number of vines were brought directly over from Don Oliver's property in McLaren Vale, a source of fruit for the iconic Penfolds Grange.

Permanent pasture between the rows provides good feed as the sheep ensure mother nature's finest fertiliser for the vines.
