When Peter and Nick Pentz set out to establish their vineyards, they identified 1000 hectares as potential sites for quality vineyards. However, they eventually settled on the best 140 hectares available and have 107 hectares planted to date. 100 Hectares have been planted to date. Their philosophy has been carried through to the cellar where only the best will be vinified with the remaining grapes being sold off.

This west-facing vineyard block is a warmer site and with the vines at 14 years maturity is starting to produce consistent and outstanding Shiraz. The Glen Rosa soil, a well-balanced combination of gravel and clay, also contribute to making fine Shiraz. Dryer conditions added to smaller berries that contributed to more concentration in the wine.

Fermentation is split between using open top tanks for punching down the skin cap and closed stainless steel tanks for pumping the juice over the skins. The fermenting grapes underwent maceration for 2 weeks. The goal was to achieve a complex and versatile Shiraz.

The wine matured for 14 months in 300L oak barrels of which 25% was new oak and 75% older barrels. 10% American oak.
