The Range vineyard is home to the estate’s oldest vines, planted in 1974, and is bottled as a single site wine in only the finest Bannockburn vintages. 2012 is one such vintage. This 1.66-hectare site sits on black brown loam over limestone base where the fertile soils often result in a larger vine leaf area and more powerful expression of Shiraz relative to the estate’s ‘Winery’ blocks. The result is a wine of sheer fruit intensity allied to delicious, bottle aged complexity. One of the rare Michael Glover Ranges, the ‘12 was hand harvested, naturally, and whole bunch fermented with wild yeasts, spending a total of 31 days on skins. Maturation took place in mostly puncheons before bottling in 2014.
