Description

David Franz H.P. Hydraulic Press Shiraz 2018

David Franz H.P. Hydraulic Press Shiraz is a tribute to David’s father, Australian winemaking legend Peter Lehmann.

Bright yet deep red colour with a purple core. Upfront red raspberry and satsuma plum aromas with lingering notes of dark chocolate and savoury spices. A warm, rich and plushy Shiraz that offers a seductively smooth mouthfeel and velvety soft tannins. Ridiculously long and lingering palate with ripe red summer berry flavours.

100% Shiraz from their Stelzer Road blocks, Bultawilta and Stonewell Hill Vineyards. Selective picking and machine harvesting directly into fermenters, then whole berry fermenting in small batch open fermenters. Hand plunging three times a day for 21 days on skins to liberate flavour and tannins before basket pressing. Ageing for 18 months in tank and French oak barrels on gross lees. No fining or filtration.

Ready to drink now, but will go for another 10 years.

A short background story:

Growing up in the Lehmann household, David and his brother Phil grew up drinking (on the sly) the wines their father made at Saltrams in the 60’s and 70’s. Their perennial favourite, which still echoes in David’s mind’s palate, was the “HP” Shiraz blends from the first half of the 70’s. They never fail to remind just how great Barossa Shiraz really is.

David’s tribute to his father is to resurrect the ‘Hydraulic Press Shiraz’, reinforcing this link with his past and bringing beautiful rich and soft Barossa Shiraz to a new generation of wine drinkers. This is a fantastic reflection of the traditional ‘Barossa style’.
