Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A lovely rich nose with aroma of black currant, blood plums, chocolate, spice, liquorice and fine pencil shaving oak. On the palate the wine is medium bodied with intense fruit flavours and excellent length. The Shiraz has excellent depth and concentration, with fine tannins. Enjoyable to drink as a young wine, it will continue to develop over four to six years.
Vineyard Notes
Warm and dry conditions prevailed until harvest, resulting in ripe fruit with excellent balance, 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 twice 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 wine was then matured in a combination of old French and American oak barriques for twelve months before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Slow cooked shoulder of lamb
