Scotchmans Hill Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Bellarine Victoria
One of Victoria's stellar performers puts their stamp on Australian Shiraz. The windswept maritime aspects of Bellarine Peninsula punish vines into extracting the maximum amount of cool climate spice while developing the ripest, luscious berry flavours. The Scotchman displays an engaging intensity of Shiraz fruit characters, pliant tannins and crisp acidity in support of liquorice and plum notes, along with vibrant Bellarine expressions of freshly milled spice, minerality and brine.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$383.00
The Bellarine Peninsula's role in the development of the Australian wine industry began in 1842, when vines were planted in the surrounding Barrabool Hills. Grown and managed mainly by Swiss immigrants, these vineyards yielded wines which were sold through regular auctions in the city of Geelong. Established in 1982, Scotchmans Hill has become a producer of some of Australia's most complex, elegant and consistent wines. Shiraz vines, clone PT23 are trained to vertical shoot positioning. Fruit is fermented in small open top pots, hand plunged and left on skins for three weeks, followed by a year's maturation in a selection of new to four year old French Troncais oak barriques.
Deep vibrant purple. A complex and rich nose of dark fruit, plums and black cherry, complemented by spice, earth and clove, over a charry oak background. Fully flavoured cool climate, sweet and savoury palate, dark fruits make way to red plum and cherry, spices and briar are supported by firm acid and fine grained tannins. Scotchmans finishes balanced, structured and long, a Shiraz of intensity and charm.
