Langhorne Creek is renowned for the annual flooding of Bremer River, which replenishes the rich alluvial soils and contributes enticing eucalypt characters into the wines, courtesy of the ubiquitous gum trees which populate the region. A meticulously managed, hands on viticulture and controlled yields translate into vintages of profound Shiraz wine. Following harvest and a term of cold soak, grapes are inoculated in traditional small batch open top fermenters. Upon completion, Selkirk spends eighteen months in a selection of American oak barriques. A high proportion of new oak, up to a third, enhances palate structure and adds luxurious complexity without masking the quality of fruit.
Deep, vibrant colour. Rich aromas of blackberries, ripe cherry and black plum are complemented by spicy oak, lifted by red currant and pepper notes. An exquisitely balanced palate structure, lined with dark bramble fruit flavours, framed by polished oak and supported by chewy, toothsome tannins. Decanting is advised, Selkirk matches well with the finest haute cuisine.
