Evans Tate Redbrook Reserve Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Margaret River Western Australia
Shiraz is selected from vines grown to the central and northern part of Margaret River, parcels which have shown remarkable balance year after year, consistently yielding loose, intensely flavoured bunches with small berry size, critical to the Evans & Tate style. The superlative ripening conditions allow flavour and tannin development to catch up with sugar ripeness, producing an intensely coloured wine with ripe, concentrated flavours and fine, soft tannins. Evans & Tate have spared no expense and have pulled all the stops to deliver a world class Shiraz.

All grapes are hand picked throughout the cool of early morning, a choice parcel is included as whole bunches. The musts are transferred to a small fermenter and cold soaked at 5°C for several days, followed by ten days of ferment at 22°C to 24°C. Juices are rack and returned over the cap for the gentle extraction of colour and tannin. Upon completion, batches are gently pressed and pressings returned to the free runs, adding structure and style to the finished wine. Components are matured a year or more in a combination of seasoned and new French oak puncheons, hogsheads and barriques. Every batch represents an individual vineyard block and is kept separate until final assemblage.
