Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A lovely rich nose with aroma of black currant, blood plums, chocolate, spice, liquorice and fine pencil saving oak. On the palate the wine is medium bodied with robust fruit flavours of cassis, raspberry, plums and spice with tannins and soft oak. The Shiraz has excellent depth and concentration and is rich and robust in the mouth. Enjoyable to drink as a young wine, it will continue to develop over three to five years.
Vineyard Notes
Warm dry spring conditions led to good fruit set and healthy vines. Dry conditions prevailed until harvest resulting in ripe fruit with excellent flavours and concentration. Careful attention to detail in the vineyard, maintaining the vines in peak condition combined with hand harvesting resulted in top quality fruit being received in the winery.
Winemaker Notes
The Shiraz was fermented in both tank and open vats with hand plunging and pumping over occurring three times daily. The wine was pressed off skins at dryness and one percent Viognier was blended with the Shiraz, to ensure a smooth and round finished wine. The vine was then matured in a combination of old French and American oak barriques for twelve months before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Barbeque steak or lamb, rosemary and feta sausages
