Shiraz Clare McLaren South Australia
Jaraman is the aboriginal word for seahorse, so named after the fossilised remains found on the Taylor property. Jaraman is a wine of regional diversity, a harmonious consolidation of terroirs. Enter Jaraman Shiraz, a multi dimensional wine and tour de force embodying the expressions of two distinct Shiraz regions, comely Clare township and the mighty McLaren Vale. Jaraman is a generously proportioned wine that fares exceptionally well with all cosmopolitan cuisine, a treat alongside Chinese pork or mousaka, ripe mature cheeses or liver pâte.
A backbone of Shiraz from the Taylor property in Clare Valley is harvested throughout the cool of night. A further component is sourced from sites in McLaren Vale's north, where temperatures are moderated by the exhilarating breezes off Gulf St Vincent. Grapes are gently destemmed into small static fermenters, component is cold soaked for several days at 6° before vinification at constant warm temperature through the actions of a Shiraz yeast isolate. Batches are gently pressed to a selection of seasoned American oak hogsheads and barrique for completion of malolactic, racked and treated to a year's maturation before fining and filtration. Alcohol 15.0%
Deep opaque red colour, ruby hues at the edge. Lifted aromas of spices and plum, red berries and violet along with chocolate and subtle cigar box characters from the oak maturation. A rich and mouthfilling palate with ripe dark berry fruit flavours, along with spice, chocolate and freshly roasted coffee characters. Finely balanced with a linear acid line and grainy tannins.
