Making outstanding Shiraz has been somewhat of a specialty at Balgownie ever since vines were established. The winemaking team's commitment to sustainable vineyard management practices, limited irrigation, compost and mulching regimens continue to yield harvest of the healthiest, small but intensely flavoured grapes. Batches of Shiraz are treated to a term of maceration for the extraction of colour, tannins and flavour. A controlled vinfication is followed by twelve months maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels before assembling into the final wine, to be initiated for secondary fermentation in bottle in the manner of Methode traditionelle.
A brilliant deep ruby red with creamy purple/ pink mousse. Attractive rich raspberry and spice aromas. The palate offers delicious flavours of red and black berries, currants, cherries and plum supported by French cocoa vanilla oak, lively tannins and elegant spice. The rich beautiful dark fruit characters are balanced by excellent acidity which keeps the palate fresh, it finishes pleasingly long and dry. Outstanding as an aperitif, alongside tapas or the classic festive lunch of turkey and roast ham.
