Whilst a large proportion of fruit for Swan Bay Shiraz is harvested off a National Trust property which commands views of Port Phillip Bay, Scotchman's Hill also manage considerable vineyard holdings in the Strathbogie Ranges, where they husband and grow some of the region's finest. Grapes are delivered to the wineworks, gently crushed and vinified in closed steel fermenters to retain all the vital characters of slowly ripened Bellarine Shiraz. To add complexity and infuse the tannins with fine charry cocoa and vanillan characters, Swan Bay is treated to fifteen months maturation under a selection of fine French oak barriques.
Deep purple in appearance. Bouquet displays a complex nose of ripe dark fruits, red berries and plum with a touch of chocolates and licorice, all balanced by spice and well integrated cedar oak. A full flavoured and complex wine which is dominated by plum, cherry and red fruits, rounded out by white pepper, liquorice and spice, before a long and lingering cedar oak finish, the length of palate supported by tight but fine grain tannins.
