Shiraz 2017
This luscious Shiraz boasts sensational flavours that affirm the very best food enhancing characteristics. Oak matured to produce a silky, velvet mouth feel with a slight spicy feeling on the swallow. Colder growing conditions makes for a much more elegant mouth feel, focusing on fruit rather than spice.

Winemaker’s Comment:
Fermented in large open top fermentation tanks. Manual punch down every 6 hours ensured a cool fermentation on the skin cap. The wine is aged in second and third 225 litre French Oak barrels, medium toast, for 14 months. Malolactic fermentation is completed in the barrel.
