Winemaker's Notes

LOizeau Shiraz is sourced from seventy and forty year-old vines in the McLaren Vale.

The colour is deep red with a purple rim. Aromas include red forest berries and plums, with a touch of earth, while careful oak handling has added overtones of nutmeg and cocoa. The flavours are of rich, ripe red fruits, pepper spice and soft fruit tannins. Barrel maturation in a mixture of old and new French oak has enhanced the wines complexity and structure. Prior to bottling, the wine was gently fined with egg whites.

LOizeau is a powerful wine and can be enjoyed now or rewarded with extended cellaring.
