Tasting Note
The colour is deep red with a purple rim. The nose appears complex, while revealing spicy, peppery, rich Shiraz overtones. The palate is full flavoured and accompanied by subtle oak and fine tannins.
Technical Information
Harvested from our members' vineyards at optimal ripeness during March. The fruit was taken to our winery where it was crushed and destemmed. The "must" was transferred to stainless steel fermenters where it was inoculated with a cultured yeast to start fermentation. The wine was pumped over to assist with colour and tannin extraction. Portions of the wine were transferred to small barriques for maturation and Malo lactic fermentation. Bottling was late in the vintage year.
Serving Suggestion
A full flavoured wine that traditionally goes well with most red meats-try it with beef or spicy pasta dishes. This wine can be enjoyed now, however it will benefit short term cellaring.
