Rich cherry red.
Scents of plum, freshly baked fruit pie and haunting notes of nutmeg, aniseed and hints of white pepper. The lively palate is full of sweet, dark berries while subtle mint and chocolate contribute to the complexity, integrating with the savoury oak and supple tannins. A delightful drive and length with acid backbone deliver a smooth, seamless finish.
This Shiraz is perfect served with red meats such as BBQ lamb or wagyu beef, and with oily fish such as grilled tuna or roast salmon. It is also delicious with an array of Asian cuisine including Indian butter chicken or Singapore chilli crab.
Fantastic now, but will also age gracefully for years.
The Estate vineyard provides blending diversity with different clones and different aged vines from several blocks. Fermented in traditional small open top fermenters and hand plunged twice daily for to 10 days using a variety of yeasts. MLF was encouraged on skins and completed in tank prior to 15 months ageing in old and new French, American and Hungarian hogsheads. The inclusion of Viognier at fermentation and in the assemblage balances the wine’s spicy cool climate origins and accentuates the floral notes.
