Regional Reserve Shiraz
Long growing season, cool weather, terrific fruit intensity and concentration.
Deep red with purple edge. Ripe dark fruit aromas of brandy and plum, white pepper. Plump dark fruits, dense, gentle tannins, cedarwood, delicious.
Fruit is sourced from carefully selected parcels of Shiraz grown on the red volcanic soils of Northern Heathcote. Fruit is harvested at 14.0-15.0 Baume to achieve a balance of fruit ripeness and soft acidity. Grapes are destemmed and crushed into both static and rotary fermenters. The resultant wine is then fermented for up to two weeks on skins prior to pressing and racking. A third of the blend is matured for 5 months in older casks and the remainder stays in tank for freshness and brightness.
Alc/Vol: 14.5%, pH: 3.7, TA: 6.2 g/L
Terrific now or enjoy over the next four to six years.
