Half the amount of new oak (15%), half the amount of whole bunch (40%) and roughly half the price – demi. Oh, and single clone of shiraz. This is the idea of Adam Foster, chef-turned-sommelier-turned-winemaker and good guy. Effusive as Foster is about what he does now, he has some great pedigree working in France, particularly with Ogier and the high end wines of Chapoutier under his belt, before starting his full time-full time career as winemaker. The fruit is from the lauded Greenstone Vineyard.
