POLISHED is the first label that I designed and the first red wine label that I released. The first vintage was 2006 and this wine is always an even mix of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The aim is to create a smooth, rich and elegant red wine that is perfectly balanced. In 2019 the fruit for this wine came from a single vineyard in Orange, NSW. The wine was gently crushed and then open fermented for three weeks, before being pressed through our basket press and then matured in French and American oak. The POLISEHD Shiraz Cabernet was first made in the Barossa, but Orange is providing the perfect cooler climate fruit for this classic Australian style. Drink it now or cellar for many more years to come.
This wine is unfiltered and a harmless sediment may remain.
