A single vineyard selection of truly remarkable Shiraz that was planted by the Helbig family in 1915. This vineyard is located on the western ridge of the famous Barossa Valley and has been a highly sought after parcel for many of the Barossa’s leading winemakers. Luckily for the Ashmead family, we were able to acquire this vineyard in 2010, forever ending the race to get this amazing fruit.

Winemakers Comments

A relatively dry spring and a tricky time during flowering paved the way for a super tiny yield from our 1915 Shiraz in 2020. We fermented the fruit in new French oak puncheons, turned on their end with a head popped out. This lead to a new method for our Helbig fermentation, allowing early integration of spicy French oak. After 2 weeks on skins the wine was pressed into new French oak where it remained for 15 months. The resultant wine oozes the dark fruit power we expect from these old vines with a seamless transition into velvety long tannins on the finish. - Jules Ashmead & Brock Harrison
