Drink with grilled lamb chops, barbecued chicken and spicy sausages.
Warm, soft and lush – this is a smooth black and sultry wine! Premium quality fruit and mature vines have produced a wine with great balance, length and fruit intensity. This attractively fruity Shiraz (in a cooler climate style) has concentrated mulberry and black pepper notes combined with a soft plummy fruit flavor and smooth tannins. This is a fresh, iron rich Shiraz on the finish and is developing beautifully!
Our Shiraz is sourced from ancient Victorian soils in order to achieve a wine with greater finesse, purity and structure as well as typical eucalypts flavors and a 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 between 72º to 77ºF (22º to 25ºC) to avoid extracting any harsh tannins, with the fermentations pumped over to extract good color. 20% of the final blend is barrel aged.
