Philip Shaw Idiot Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Orange New South Wales
Philip Shaw was twice International Wine and Spirit Competition's Winemaker of Year. Following a career as chief at Rosemount and Southcorp, Shaw struggled to determine the most favourable terroir in Australia until he accidentally caught sight of the undulating countryside whilst flying over Orange in New South Wales. Shiraz from Orange differs to Australia's warmer regional styles. Reminiscent of a Rhone Valley, Orange Shiraz displays distinct bright spice with a fine pepper character revealing the vineyard's cooler, elevated origins.

Vinified from parcels grown to the higher altitude Koomooloo Vineyard at Orange. Throughout the growing season, east facing sides of vine are lightly leaf plucked to allow air movement and morning sun exposure to bunches. The high elevation delivers ultraviolet intensity so leaves on the western side are left to shade fruit. Grapes are harvested in the morning, de-stemmed and passed over the sorting table to remove stalks and unwanted berries, transferred to a combination of closed and open fermenters for a higher level of fruit density while achieving a lighter, softer style. A course of wild indigenous yeast vinification is followed by a year's maturation on gross lees in a selection of well seasoned oak barrels.
Medium to light red with youthful purple hues. The aroma is spicy, lifted and intense, an appealing liquorice character to the intense bouquet. Bright full fruit flavours in a medium bodied package, classic cool area Shiraz, spice integrated with red fruits, lovely soft tannins and finish. Perfect with tomato braises or meats, divine with lamb.
