The Gask is sourced from a single plot of Shiraz nestled into the eastern slope of Mt. McKenzie that is painstakingly nurtured by the Knight family. Planted in 1960 this elevated site yields small, intense berries that possess great intensity of flavour without sacrificing balance & poise.
2014 benefitted from a cooler period in mid-February, resulting in longer ripening periods and relatively low yields providing fruit with good concentration and depth. This was all nicely tied together with seasoned French barriques; a wine to appreciate now but will also benefit form 5-10 years in the Cellar.
The rocky outcrops surrounding Greg and Cynthia Knight’s small plot of Shiraz in the Eden Valley is reminiscent of the stone burial grounds on the hills above the Torbreck forest.
