Tasting Notes

Shiraz is a superb handcrafted wine of complexity and intensity. Deep garnet red in color, displaying complex aromas of blackberry, spice, plum and licorice that give way to a subtle integration of smoky, vanillin oak.

The palate is full of fleshy dark cherry and bramble fruit with dark chocolate nuances and savory notes of leather and spice on the finish. This wine has excellent tannin structure and balanced acidity.

Retail Price: $50/bottle

Winemaking

Hand picked, basket pressed and unfiltered, the gentle unobtrusive winemaking has captured the subtle and intriguing characters of this Shiraz. The grapes were destalked (separating berries from the bunch) and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel three tonne fermenters.

A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 10 days on skins at 28° C. The skins were gently pressed in the JLB Vaslin Bucher basket press. Malolactic fermentation in French oak prior to twenty months maturation in a combination of new and older French & American oak hogsheads. A further 4 months bottle aging prior to release gives a more harmonious and perfectly balanced wine.

Mid-garnet hue; enticing aromatics and flavours of black plums, licorice and dried herbs plus dark cherries dipped in chocolate, floral and some creaminess too. Fittingly seasoned with the right amount of spice, oak and the savoury tannins melding into the structure of the wine. Neatly balanced and overall impressive.
