The fruit came from a mixture of Old Quarter (Blk 7 Grenache and Block 3 Mataro – both 1950s plantings) as well as younger material: Polygon 11 Shiraz on schist and Block 18 & 22 Grenache, also on schist. NASAA certified organic and biodynamic.
"The 2021 Night Sky Old Vines GSM in a nutshell: old vines, wild ferment, concrete tulip vessels. This is pure, dark, brooding and vital with layers of blood, iodine, salted licorice, blood plum skins and roasted meat fat." - 91 Points, Erin Larkin, The Wine Advocate
"Very deep, dark red-purple colour and a concentrated, ripe and powerful bouquet and flavour, spicy and meaty aromas join with sweet berry nuances, the palate flavour backed by masses of firm tannins. A solid, full-bodied wine with masses of drying tannins. More time recommended. (Old vine grenache 48%, young vine shiraz 37%, old vine mataro 15%. 70% whole bunch. Fermented in concrete then 3 months in an oak foudre)." - 92 points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review
