This wine is 100% Shiraz with all the grapes coming from the Estate. On the nose there is blackcurrants and almonds. The pallet is spicy with white pepper and liquorice. The aftertaste leaves you with hints of a cigar box.
After the harvesting of the grapes the must has been cold soaked for 7 days at a temperature of 7°C. Thereafter it was fermented for 8 days in open concrete tanks with 5 punch downs a day. Finally, the must was oaked for 12 months in French, European and American (20%) oak, 30% new oak, 20% second fill and the rest an even split between third to fifth fill barrels.
This Shiraz goes well with Grilled Beef served with a spicy Sauce or with strong Hard Cheese or Mild Blue.
Drinking well now, but perfect after aging for 3-7 years.
