Only ever made in exceptional vintage years, Shiraz grapes are all hand picked off a single block of vine at Moppa. Grapes are all destemmed into small fermenters for several days of cold soak and inoculation to wild, indigenous and ambient yeasts. After a course of vinification, pumpover and plunges, ferments are brought to a halt by the addition of a well aged, oak barrel brandy, which preserves palate sweetness and retains a higher measure of alcohol. Batches are gently basket pressed directly into seasoned French oak barriques for a term of eighteen months maturation, to be bottled without fining or filtration.
Inky black, intense hue. Fruit driven, lifted aromatics of dark blackberries and cassis are blissfully complemented by the wonderful scents of oak aged brandy spirit. Full bodied, concentrated and silky smooth, layered with dark bramble flavours and aromaticly spiced choco plum notes, Highland Fling is the perfect accompaniment to good beef or the very finest cheese.
