A distinctive, cool climate effort from Australia's most precious Terra rosa soils, Shiraz has long thrived in Coonawarra and comprises the oldest vines on the Rymill property. Following the crush, fruit is inoculated and vinified in twenty tonnes capacity rotary fermenters, which periodically mix the fruit and keep the skins moist, maintaining ferments between 20C and 25C. A select culture of natural yeast is employed, which retains attractive berry aromas while dominating any wild yeasts which might impart disagreeable flavours. The finished wine is matured up to two years in a selection of new and seasoned French and American oak barrels.
Dark cherry red with purple hues. Rich, intense nose with lashings of black fruit, dark chocolates and white pepper. Red fruit flavours of plum and strawberry come through on the lifted palate, balanced and smooth. Integrated oak with lovely savoury notes, sweet berry fruit, appealing cinnamon spice and dusty cocoa characters, lingering on a beautiful long lasting finish.
