2014 Estate Shiraz

$15.00

TASTING NOTES

The fruit and vinification is intended to produce a wine style opulent and approachable as a young wine. This full bodied Shiraz echoes the Barossa’s hall mark signature of concentrated fruit. Lifted aromatics of blueberry, chamomile, violets, and pepper give way to a well-structured full bodied palate, fruit driven with a persistent finish.

Description

The wines produced from the vintage of 2014 are excellent. The weather conditions during spring and early summer were dry and above average heat degree-days regulated shoot growth and berry development. By mid February and well into veraison, soil moisture levels were extremely low but a record-breaking rain event replenished the soils. The weather conditions that followed were ideal. ‘Balanced’ probably best describes most wines from our harvest this year.

The Shiraz Vineyards intended for this blend are picked early whilst encouraging opulent flavour accumulation. 30% of the fruit is fermented as whole bunch in open top fermenters. Oak maturation occurs for 12 month in only puncheons and hogsheads with 20% new French oak.
