Lush! Ripe mulberry and plum with savoury tannins and salty finish
Tasting Notes: Premium quality fruit and mature vines have produced a wine with great balance, length and fruit intensity. Aromas of rich, ripe fruits with leather. Dark cherry, mulberry and plum with black pepper notes that integrate beautifully with the smooth, supple savoury tannins.
This Shiraz is sourced from ancient Victorian soils in order to achieve a wine with greater finesse, purity and structure as well as typical eucalypt flavours and saline finish associated with the area. Picked at night and crushed within an hour of picking before being sent to the fermentation tanks. The Shiraz grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled tanks maintained at 22 - 25ºC to avoid extracting any harsh tannins, with the fermentations pumped over to extract good colour. 20% of the final blend is barrel aged.
