Old Plains Raw Power Shiraz 2018, South Australia

Fruit sourced from Angle Vale & Currency Creek. Soil: Red Clay over limestone. Wine aged in 50% seasoned American oak, 50% tank matured. Grapes were machine harvested early morning with whole berry ferment in 10-ton open top concrete fermenters with twice daily pump-overs. Basket pressed with ferment finishing off in barrel / tank. Tasting notes: Lifted aromatics with spice, plums and dark chocolate. Medium bodied flavors follow through from the aromatics with plenty of “raw power”. Rewind the tape 20 years and Rawley Power’s voice was being pounded into the ear drums of punk music fans throughout this southern land. Rawley’s strained voice as front man for punk band ‘Anti-Power’ was also known to true blue fans as the ‘Raw Power Show’ as Rawley’s voice took hold over the garage crowds whipping them into the original mosh. 20 plus years on, a different life in full swing as creator of this red flowing liquid. A different life with the same ‘my way’ approach. Punk singer, punk winemaker, Raw Power.
