Hand harvested, destemmed and crushed into small 1.5 tonne open-top fermenters. Selected fermenters had up to 25% whole-bunch clusters added to the destemmed berries. A pre-fermentation cold soak ensured a slow initiation to fermentation, where temperatures were allowed to peak at 27oC before being cooled to 20oC for the remainder of the fermentation. Hand plunged daily allowed for a gentle extraction and helped to prolong the fermentation. After an extended period on skins the ferments were pressed to 50% new French oak hogsheads. Matured and not racked throughout the 18-month oak-maturation period provided for palate weight and texture. Prior to bottling, the wine was naturally clarified and bottled without filtration.

To qualify for the Remus blend the vineyards need to over 50 years of age and managed sustainably.
A story that has intrigued us for years is the fable of the legendary founders of Ancient Rome, Romulus and Remus. These twins were abandoned at birth and reared by a she-wolf. Romulus murdered his twin in a fit of rage over the naming of Rome, the city which both had built. Legend presents Romulus as the stronger, more powerful of the brothers, while Remus was more refined, focussed and elegant. We believe the twins’ characterise the distinctive and unique flavours and attributes of Shiraz from the twin valleys – the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley.

... give this wine a sniff and you'll find perfumed blackcurrant fruits impeccably defined, their breadth sweetened with a little oak on the palate, it is intense, deep and salty-savoury but clearly a tenor in range, surging through the palate on a surf of pristine fruits. The natural balance is impressive, as are the ultra-soft tannins which seem to melt into the fruits, combining the wine's saline crushed-stone richness to convey some of the profundity of terroir possible here.

Lots of old-vine character with bark, dark mushroom and moss to the blackberry and plum aromas and flavors. Some black truffles, too. Full-bodied, but not overpowering, with creamy tannins and lots of intensity at the finish. Always in reserve at the end. So drinkable, but it will age fabulously.
