Inkberry Shiraz Cabernet is 100% estate grown and crafted from our high elevation Mountain Estate. This extreme elevation exposes our grapes to an intense amount of sunlight and UV rays. This generous sunlight gives our small grapes an amazingly dark,"inky" color.
The higher you are, the greater the intensity of sunlight. While the temperature is not as high as other parts of Australia, the UV readings certainly are. This helps them get fruit with great intensity of flavor. The higher you get, the cooler it gets. The lower temperatures mean that the grapes take a bit longer to ripen, giving us time to get the evenness right across the bunches.
