The raw Shiraz grapes at vintage feature ripe, fleshy, berry flavours with firm, fine, elegant tannin. Vine health is fastidiously maintained and canopy densities are always optimal as a result of shoot thinning to ensure balanced growth. Grapes are cold soaked in eight-tonne fermenters to extract and retain desirable varietal flavours and aromas. The juices are vinified at around 45C to prevent over extraction of tannins locked in the skins. Macerations are not extended for the same reason. The wine is transferred to barrel for malolactic, softening the palate and completing the integration. Matured eighteen months in a combination of new and seasoned Francois Freres and Sirugue French oak bariques.
Dark red, purple hues. Intense aromas of blueberry and satsuma plum, subtle anise and earthy undertones. Intense flavours of red and black berries over a length of fine silky tannins, perfectly integrated within a long and generous mouthfeel, its palate sweetness and cherry ripe oak will continue to soften and evolve. A suitable match to the finest red meat gourmandise.
