Glug 'Saint Gotthard' Barossa Valley Shiraz 2017
Region: Barossa Valley
We use simple, tried and true methods to make wines at Glug. Pick when fully ripe is the first and by far the most important step to get right. We do not favour early picking to capture a different flavour expression. The grapes then go to open fermenters and ferment for a period decided by the winemaker.
When completed the wine is next moved into seasoned oak barrels where the wine is matured until bottling. Sitting above all of this is of course the location as the flavours are not generated by the process but by the weather each vintage.
You can mess up what nature provides all too easily but with modern winemaking this should not happen. So the 2017 will be different to previous vintages in some small way because of what nature provided. Capturing that is the Glug way.
