Laughing Jack fortified vintage port


Single vineyard

Fortified Vintage Port | Basket Pressed | Wild Yeast Ferment

The first release of our fortified collection, this Vintage SV (single vineyard) Shiraz is sourced from Block 6, located on the eastern slopes of Moppa Hill.
The grapes were hand picked on the 1st April at a Baume of 16.5; de-stemmed, 100% berries crushed and placed into a small 3 tonne open top fermenter. Fermentation was started with wild yeast and after 6 days on skins the desired Baume of 6.05 was reached. A mathematical calculation is used to add the desired amount of aged brandy spirit to make the fortified Vintage Port.
