By Nugan Estate
Big, full fruit flavours, textured and rich with smooth, supple tannins.
Tasting Notes: Deep dark purple in color. Aromas of spice scented dark berry & cherry fruit, ripe and lush with chocolate and fresh herbs. The palate is fuller bodied, plush, concentrated and layered with sweet black and blue fruit flavors with hints of pepper spice and suggestions of vanilla. The tannins are ripe and velvety smooth bringing this to a warm and lingering finish. This is a wine that is made for those who want a full-on style with big fruit flavors and textural richness and smooth, supple tannins.
The 2014 Alfredo Dried Grape Shiraz was sourced from the family’s Riverina vineyards in Griffith and their McLaren Vale vineyard in South Australia. Made in an Amarone style, after picking the grapes were dried on special racks to increase concentration, textural richness and flavor intensity. After fermentation the wines were then aged in American and French oak for 12 months.
