Wine tasting notes

This deep coloured Shiraz is youthful and vibrant, with a lovely dark fruit and spiced plum character on the nose. The oak supports rather than masks the fruit, which is bright and lively yet plush and fleshy on the palate. The tannins are ripe and silky, giving the wine a texture that is unusual at this price.

Vinification Notes

The wine was fermented in static fermenters with minimal cap management allowing soft and gentle extraction of the natural tannins from the fruit. Following seven days on the skins, the juice was pressed to tank for malolactic fermentation. The majority was matured in tank, with a small proportion matured in French oak, to complement the rich McLaren Vale flavours.
