Shiraz Grampians Victoria
A conspicuous over achiever, Halls Gap Vineyard has been source to some of the most memorable vintages Seppelt, Penfold and Mount Langi Ghiran. Established 1969 to a propitious eastern facing slope at 260 metres above the sea, Halls Gap is all about the monumental nature of Grampians Shiraz. Treated to a traditional course of open vat ferments, hand plungings and extended term of eighteen months maturation, Fallen Giants articulates the imposing structure and fruit saturation which defines Grampians Shiraz, opaque, succulent and piquantly spiced.
Deep, dark garnet red. Plum and blackberry liquered nose, maraschinos, graphite and freshly fragrant licorice spice. Blueberries, black brambleberries, currants and peppered spice on a length of fine and firm, yet refined, malleable tannins. A western districts Shiraz of opulence, generosity and palate richness to accompany the bravest fare, full flavoured meats and root vegetable dressed in a powerful red wine glace de viande.
