2008 Balgownie Estate Shiraz

2008 Balgownie Estate Shiraz

After a traditional fermentation in open tanks, the wine was aged for eighteen months in new and old French oak barriques. The wine is medium bodied with elegant pepper character accompanying blackberry and plum fruits. The wine is beginning to display some developed character but still has a firm tannin structure and a persistent finish.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2008 growing season provided cool clear growing conditions leading up to harvest for our Estate Shiraz, which was picked in excellent condition. Traditional techniques were utilised and included open vat fermentation with regular hand plunging, pumping over and barrel fermentation. After pressing the wine was aged in new (40%) and second used French barriques for 18 months prior to bottling.
