Drink with Moroccan lamb tagine, roast vegetables and hard cheeses.
Soft supple Victorian Shiraz, dangerously more-ish by the glass. Bright, aromatic and juicy on the nose with just a touch of naughty bacon fat and white pepper. True to the varietal. This vintage is our brightest, most dangerously drinkable Shiraz to date due to it's fine, bright fruit and soft silky elegance.
Our Shiraz is sourced from ancient Victorian soils in order to achieve a wine with greater finesse, purity and structure as well as typical eucalypti flavors 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 between 72ºF and 77ºF (22ºC 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.
