Description

St Michael’s Vineyard was established by Mick Cann in 1994 with the first planting of 2000 Shiraz vines. This was followed in 1995 with further Shiraz, Merlot and a small patch of Cabernet Sauvignon. There is also 200 Semillon vines supplied in error. Petit Verdot and further Shiraz and Merlot were added in 2000.

Winemaking is traditional with open vat fermentation, hand plunging of skins and basket pressing is used to obtain maximum colour extraction. Cooling backup is available if needed.

The wines are tank settled prior to oak maturation for up to 24 months. Mainly French oak is used with some Russian and premium American on the Shiraz. A percentage of new oak is used each year.
