Ram’s Leap Wines

The family’s core brand – is more contemporary in look and approachable in style, but just as serious when it comes to winemaking. The reds also exhibit the same hallmark intensity as a result of  yields of under 2 tonnes/acre (14 hectolitres/acre), careful winemaking and oak complexity.

The flagship wine for the family is the Ram’s Leap Shiraz displaying an intensely unique style.  The soil and climate are ideal for the Southern French varietals planted.  The coarse sandy alluvial soils deposited there by the Duck creek 2000 years ago and long ripening days create an ideal setting to construct full bodied wines with an unique outback terroir.

Ram’s Leap Shiraz.  “Old world sophistication with an Australian pedigree”.  The Shiraz is fermented with a Rhone yeast at 29-30 degrees Celsius.  This is to emulate the elegant style of the wines of the “Cote du Rhone” with a hallmark Australian intensity.  The ultra low yield (2 tonnes/acre) harvested from the Shiraz blocks is a testament to the intense flavour and colour profile and the reason why it is our flagship varietal.  After an extended time on skins (14 days) the wine is left to mature for 12 months in 2-3 year old American oak.  This allows the wine to retain its delicate fruit expression and display luscious cocoa characters on the palate.
