A traditional blend of Grenache and Shiraz produced using the saigne method, which involves bleeding the juice from the skins after a short period of contact. Twelve different ferments were all selected for this wine with each one showing individual characteristics unique to this style. The wine was fermented at cool temperatures to maintain delicate aromas, and then halted when the desired residual sugar level was reached.

Old Garden was picked at optimum phenological ripeness. After fermentation approaching three weeks on skins the wine was subsequently matured in 100% new French barriques for 18 months.

This demonstrates the remarkable nature of the vineyard - a wine of such iconic distinctiveness.
