Alpha Crucis Winemakers Shiraz 2015



Available Now!

Tom Harvey of Chalk Hill invited 6 high-profile winemakers, adept at small parcel winemaking with proven results at the top level, to make their version of an Alpha Crucis Shiraz from the ‘Heritage Block’ with the fruit from the outstanding 2015 vintage. The winemakers were given complete control of the crucial decisions from time of harvest through to the vinification and elevage processes. To ensure initial fruit equality, each of the winemakers received fruit from 6 of 36 rows allocated to ensure uniformity. Once each winemaker gave the instructions to pick, the fruit was harvested and subsequently delivered to the winemakers’ respective wineries.. Each winemaker made 1,000 bottles and was asked to bottle their wine in July of 2016
