Pruning Shed Block Shiraz

11

July 2017

After a week of much needed rain, we’re back to pristine, crisp winter days in the Barossa. Sparkling, sunny, and clear and icy as a mountain stream.
Better weather for pruning by far – the big (and critical!)  job we’re tackling in the vineyards right now to set the vines up for perfect ripening in 2018. This is Shed Block Shiraz, being pruned this week.

One of my favourite Shiraz blocks from superstar grower, Steve Kurtz, in the Light Pass sub-region of the Barossa Valley.

You’ll see this delicious fruit start to come through when the 2017 RED by Caroline Dunn Shiraz hits the Naked Wines virtual shelves next year.
