Details: Wild Soul is a very small family operated vineyard and winery producing only dry red wines.

All wines are made from grapes grown on our 1.3ha vineyard, with an emphasis on organic sprays and nutrition. The Shiraz vines were field budded in 1996, the Cabernet Sauvignon in 1997 and the Merlot in 1999. The vines are trained to the Smart Dyson system resulting in maximum exposure of the grapes to the sun and a large surface area of canopy.

All wine is barrel matured in a mix of new and old American oak. The wines are unfiltered as part of our approach to minimal interference.

Wild Soul is a very small family operated vineyard and winery in the Granite Belt of S.E.QLD, producing only dry red wines.
All wines are made from grapes grown on our 1.3ha vineyard, with an emphasis on organic sprays and nutrition.
The Shiraz vines were field budded in 1995 the Cabernet Sauvignon in 1996 and the Merlot in 1999. The vines are trained to the Smart/Dyson system resulting in maximum exposure of the grapes to the sun and a large surface area of canopy.
Each vintage, family and friends arrive for an early pick of the still cold grapes and the crushing before lunch. Open fermentation and plunging of the caps is followed by basket pressing into tanks and barrels.
All wine is barrel matured in a mix of new and old American oak, with the 2002 vintage having the cabernet in our first French barrel. The wines are unfiltered , with no fining agents used either , as part of our approach to minimal interference . However this does lead to some deposits, these can easily be decanted off. Bottling is a simple gravity filler, corks capsules and labels are all applied individually.
We currently have a 2001 cabernet sauvignon a wine i like chilled . The 2002 Shiraz and Cabernet sauvignon having had an extra year in the barrel due to a fire destroyed 2003 vintage, are still very young but will develop over the next few years . The 2002 Merlot released May 2005 , is not a typical soft Merlot being the first vintage off young vines.
