A new wine for us and we are quite excited.
"Our 'Farm' block just to the south of McLaren Vale township provides the black loam soil over clay that limits yields and encourages small berries to produce the rich Shiraz fruit for this wine. Harvesting was at night to take advantage of cooler temperatures. Bunches were de-stemmed then allowed to ferment for 7-10 days on skins before pressing. The oak used for maturation was predominantly new and used French with some second use American to aid in the perception of fruit sweetness and a light fining polished the soft tannin structure.
Bright, vibrant nose showing red plum and olive nuances overlayed with subtle oak that provides an element of coffee mocha. Lovely rich. full, concentrated ripe shiraz palate with fine tannins that provide persistence and length. Round acidity provides elegance and grace" Winery
A seriously good Aussie Shiraz that just shows power but still restraint!!!
