Made by Punt Road Assistant Winemaker Tom Hill. Tom Rogers wines reflect the individuality of the sub-zones of the Yarra Valley. The 2015 vintage had close to ideal conditions.
Shiraz (Syrah another synonym) was sourced from the Rising Vineyard in St Andrews (Upper Yarra). Also used for past Luke Lambert wines. The vineyard has poor soil (Silurian mudstone through rock), is at 250m altitude and is exposed to high winds making it a low fertility site.
The fruit is cold soaked for several days, partially with whole bunches and wild fermented. The wine is matured in a mix of new and old French Puncheons (500L barrels) for about 12 months.
