Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Delicious rich dark plums envelop your senses but still allow aromas of deeply perfumed dark red roses and an inviting hint of candied orange chocolate.The palate is all about the endlessly smooth dark berries including mulberries and blackberries. A suggestion of high cocoa chocolate enhances the gently spiced beautifully integrated French oak.
Vineyard Notes
This Shiraz was sourced from two vineyards, one located in the gateway to McLaren Vale together with fruit from Maslin’s Beach (located very close to the Gulf St. Vincent at the south-western end of McLaren Vale). The gateway sourced Shiraz has lovely structure giving solid backbone to the wine with intense mid to back palate presence, the Maslin's portion contributes chalky tannins and minerality.
Production Notes
This Shiraz was fermented in an open fermenter with floating cap management with four cap turnovers per day. The wine was gently pressed at dryness and aged for 18 months in new French oak hogsheads.
