Outstanding Langtons Classification. A spectacular effort which sparked the gold rush into the sovereign Heathcote style. Georgias Paddock is a powerful single vineyard Shiraz laden with exotic flavours, gentle spice, engaging complexity and heart stirring tannins. Minimal intervention allows the personality of fruit grown on this unique paddock to fully express itself in the wine.
Georgia's Shiraz Paddock is twelve hectares yielding about three tonnes each, mainly planted to vine in the 1970s. The intention from the very start was to retain varietal purity and clonal character through planting on own rootstock rather than grafting to phylloxera resistant American non vinifera material. The vines enjoy a sunny, open and balanced canopy which keeps fungal diseases at bay and eliminates any need for summer pruning, leaf plucking or crop reduction. All picking is carried out by hand with the help of well rehearsed locals. Following vinification the wine is pressed off lightly and the pressings rerturned. Georgia's Paddock is matured in a selection of new and seasoned French and American oak barriques.
TASTING NOTES
A brilliant, dense crimson colour. Subdued aromas, opening swiftly to nuances of red berries bound by chocolate and subtle coffeed, caramelled oak, fruits of the forest and a touch of game. The palate shows delicious malt and vanillan oak, sweet green herbs, savoury and mint, morello, roast meat and parched earth.

About Jasper Hill Winery
The aim is to make great wine, with the preservation of nature's flavours, complexities and balance by using minimal intervention in the vineyards and in the cellar - to allow the individual vineyard's sense of place to express itself
Jasper Hill are produced entirely on the estate using organic/biodynamic principles. The estate produce their own organic compost and have never used synthetic chemicals on either the vines or the soils, since vineyards were planted in 1975. Viticultural practices are as close to nature as possible: own rooted vines (ie. not grafted on to American rootstocks to confer Phylloxera resistance), no irrigation whatsoever, minimal tillage, natural inter-row mulching leading to broad bio-diversity, in turn giving depth and intensity to our wines. Only hand pruning of the vines and hand harvesting of the fruit can allow the human connection to the living soil. Jasper Hill»
