Hand picked grapes are crushed and cold soaked over twenty four hours to extract maximum colour and flavour. The juices are inoculated with a neutral yeast to initiate vinification, which takes place in open fermentation tanks. Half way through fermentation the cap was headed down to achieve maximum extraction. The wine was then pressed to finish primary and malolactic fermentation in barrel. Once complete, Maurice O'Shea is aged in a selection of the finest quality, exclusively French oak barriques for up to eighteen months. During maturation the wine is racked and returned twice to build complexity in the middle palate, mellow the tannins and allow the sweet berry fruit to emerge.
A medium intensity red with bright crimson hues. Generous primary fruit aromas of plums, raisin and raspberries with complex nuances of paprika, pepper and smoky chocolate oak. A medium weight palate dominated by a melange of ripe red raspberry and plums. Maurice O'Shea is dense with sweet fruits and ripe fruit tannin, generous, fine grained vanillin oak and hints of spicy paprika, forming layers of complexity. A fine, elegantly structured, classic Hunter Shiraz.
