Winemaker's Notes

This wine is made from premium grapes sourced from one of the great Shiraz producing areas of South Australia namely McLaren Vale . A significant proportion of this wine is handmade using traditional methods i.e. small two tonne open fermenters, hand plunged and basket pressed prior to spending 10 months in older French and American oak Hogsheads.

The wine shows its youthfulness with purple/red tinges on the rim. Sweet red berry fruits with some lifted oak characters dominate the bouquet. The medium weight palate reflects the bouquet, with its red fruits and soft oak flavours; sufficent acid and tannins provide structure and balance without being overbearing. The softer tannins and minimal use of oak, approx 10mths in total with 10% being new oak, makes for a fresher earlier drinking style. However this wine can safely be cellared for 2--4 years depending on the amount of bottle age you desire. 15.0% Alc/Vol Drink now or cellar for more complexity.
