Monterra M Block Shiraz 2021 


We are excited about this new entrant Shiraz from the Fleurie Peninsula.

"Splendidly ripe and instantly appealing, the wine shows black/blueberry, violet, toasted spice and cedar characters. The palate is equally satisfying, delivering excellent concentration and plush mouthfeel, wonderfully framed by velvety texture and polished tannins. Gorgeously flavoursome and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2033. Oct 2023." 94/100 Sam Kim  

"Our maritime vineyard produces this fruit forward medium bodied wine with elegant strength and firm tannins suitable for short term ageing. This fruit was sourced from Vasarelli’s Currency Creek Vineyard. They insist on perfectly ripe, healthy grapes, low yields and harvesting at precisely the right time. Harvested in the cool of the early morning to preserve fruit structure. Extended time on skins pre and post ferment to allow gentle extraction. Matured for 18 months in 10% New and 90% seasoned French Oak Hogsheads to allow softening of tannins and acid and assist fruit / oak integration.

Deep purple in colour, this Shiraz is abound with flavours of black fruits and peppery spice. Finishing with supple tannins and just a hint of oak spice. This 2021 M-Block Shiraz can be enjoyed now, or will benefit with short term cellaring of 3 -5 years, If you can wait!" Winery
