Moates Lane 2018 Shiraz

COLOUR

Dark garnet red with a purple edge.

NOSE

Clean pronounced developing aromas of sweet blueberry and herb with a forest berry and black pepper overlay.

PALATE

Clean developing full-bodied flavours of fresh blackberry and ripe fig over a subtle vanilla oak and pepper background with even supporting tannins across the palate.

WINEMAKING

Sourced from 30 plus year old Pyrenees Shiraz Vineyards. Fermented on skins in small open fermenters and stainless steel tanks for 8 to 10 days. MLF was encouraged on skins and completed in tank prior to aging in French and American oak barrels.

VINTAGE NOTES

Cool conditions in early spring enabled a subsequent long growing season. A warm dry summer subsided into ideal cooler autumn conditions prior to harvest.
