The Dust Kicker is a blended wine of premium Barossa varieties. It is a vinous tribute to my work boots, as we spend many hot summer days walking the rows of Barossa Vineyards to select the perfect parcels of fruit to make this wine. 2009 was a fantastic year for Grenache and Mataro in the Barossa Valley. The parcels of fruit that made it into the final blend were sourced from twelve different locations. The final breakdown of the blend consists of Grenache 50%, Shiraz 30% and Mataro 20%. All parcels undertake malolactic fermentation in seasoned oak, and spend 18 months maturation time in barrel. The wine is un-filtered or fined to show the true character of the fruit that makes this wine.
