The LSD blend is made up of 37% Lagrein from Mount Crawford on the cusp of the Barossa ranges, 35% Shiraz from the ‘BIL’ and ‘Chook Shed’ blocks of our SJR Resurrection Vineyard in Ebenezer and 28% Durif from the Hoffmann family vineyard in Bethany. Following harvest, in February and March, the grapes were all fermented separately, spending between 7–12 days on skins, before being pressed to a combination of French oak Hogsheads and Barriques for 20 months maturation. The resulting wine has an intense colour profile and freshness from the Lagrein grapes, Shiraz contributes dark plums, a beautiful fragrance and mid-palate structure, while Durif brings fleshy dark fruit notes and fine savoury tannins.
