- French oak
- Fine tannins
Deep black on black in the glass, this Shiraz has lovely lifted notes of fig, blackcurrant, fresh cedar, liquorice and tar waft from the glass. The texture is caressing and coats all your taste receptors on your tongue, this wine is very drinkable, it jumps out of the glass and leaps down your throat. The soft nature really lifts the experience up and takes us for a ride. The finish is very clean and the reverberate across the late palate is very seamless as all the acid, fruit and tannins work together to make this a very rewarding experience.
The many parcels making up this wine were crushed into and fermented in three, five, seven and 10 tonne open top vessels. Regular pump overs three times daily were performed during the peak of fermentation to extract flavours, colour and tannins. At pressing, the free run and pressings were combined to tank, then racked to barrel for oak maturation where malolactic fermentation occurred. All batches were kept separate and blended just prior to bottling.
Matured for 12 months in French oak, which 13% was new, and the remainder in one to six year old puncheons and hogsheads.
Drinking great now, this wine will cellar for five to ten years.
Food Pairing: Enjoy with braised lamb shank or seared venison steak.
