Description

With just over 18 hectares, or around 43 acres, of Shiraz, Calcannia’s estate grown fruit shone in the 2016 vintage, the conditions ideal for a richness and concentration of flavour. Placed in older French barrels, and bottled with minimal filtration, the result is a true expression of Shiraz from the Clare Valley region.

The 2016 Clare vintage was high in quality and slightly higher in yields. A stress free 2015 winter allowed the vines to store extra nutrients for potentially better crops. Spring saw good rains and little frost, and advanced growing which lead to early harvest time with the right mix of vine stress without disease pressure.

Nestled in the Clare Valley’s Stanley Flat region, Calcannia is 130km due north of Adelaide, and 6 km north of the
township of Clare, beside the Hutt River and the Clare Valley Racecourse. It’s moderate-continental climate
enjoys cool nights and long warm summer days, helping give balance and structure to the wines.

Calcannia was rated a 5 Star winery by James Halliday, 2019
