Description

Bright deep, dark red with a luminous purple core. Vibrant notes of blue berries overlayed with dried violet petals and gentle woody spices. A soft entry that quickly fans out and saturates the palate; the perfect blend of power and elegance. Medium to full bodied in nature, this wine has ample fruit purity combined with lively savoury nuances. Notes or primary blue fruits combined with licorice straps and a brilliantly fragrant floral overtone. Tannins are savoury and detailed. They run long across the palate and opens the wine to a long complex finish.

The grapes for this Shiraz were crushed into and fermented in 57, 7 and 10 tonne open fermenters. During the peak of fermentation the batches received regular pump overs 2-3 times daily to extract colour, flavour and tannin. The average time on skins was 15 days. The free run was drained off and the skins were pressed, with the pressings then combined with the free run. After 24 hours the wine was racked to barrel where malolactic fermentation proceeded. The final blend was lightly fined and unfiltered prior to bottling.

Maturation took place 14 months in 12% new American oak hogsheads, the balance in 1 to 8 year old American and French oak.

Under good cellaring conditions this wine will age 10+ years.
