Poonawatta Estate PoonawattaThe Cuttings Shiraz 2013

Poonawatta  Eden Valley The Cuttings Shiraz 

Vineyard: The Cuttings is produced from a small dry grown vineyard established from vine cuttings from the original Shiraz vines believed to have been planted in 1880. With historical considerations and declining yields a task to re-established a separate vineyard in 1980 took place.

Season: The lead-up to vintage saw an early onset of summer, with occasional thunder-storms andfour heat spikes into the high 40s, through summer. Fortunately 16ml of rain came, the first rain for six months which helped dry-grown vines through to maturity. Cool drizzly weather at the end of March nearly brought the harvest to a halt but a return to an Indian summer gave varieties a chance to develop quality fruit.
