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

Leading in to the 2019 vintage we had some very dry conditions. These old vines with roots deep into the sandy loam are used to searching for any available water, however the exceptionally low yield in 2019 is an honest display of a hard earned crop. Our 2019 Helbig 1915 Shiraz is hand picked, fermented in a large format oak barrel (1500 litres) and left on skins in this closed vessel for several weeks. This results in a very gentle and slow extraction of the bold tannins synonymous with the Helbig fruit. The wine was then pressed and spent a couple of winters in some of our favourite French oak. The 2019 Helbig 1915 Shiraz has abundant presence on the palate, with fruit and tannin seamlessly aligned.
