Hand picked Shiraz from the elite Filsell Vineyard, where the vines are almost a hundred years of age, along with a small portion of fruit from even older Barossa sites. Meshach is made from grapes exhibiting tremendous concentration and intensity, especially when allowed to ripen to the desired Baume of 14.5°. After crushing, juices are fermented down to a Baume of 1°, then pressed and transferred into a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak hogsheads for completion and a course of malolactic. Components are racked and the barrels cleaned, returned to the same oak for eighteen months maturation. Meschach is bottled and aged a further three years before release.
Exceptional depth and intensity of colour. Powerful aromas of ripe blackberry, spiced plums and dark chocolate along with delicate touches of floral, raspberries and mint. The palate is sumptuous with flavours of Swiss chocolate, savoury spice, raspberrie and red currant. The palate hits perfect balance between flavour, concentration and structure, exhibiting beautiful tannins and excellent length. Meschach will appeal to the connoisseur in every red wine enthusiast.
