2017 Kangarilla Road Devil's Whiskers Shiraz
Expensive and delicious expressions of fragrant spice celebrate the dark stylishly elegant Single Vineyard fruit. Dark berry conserve takes central stage on your palate and there are suggestions of a slight citrus note reminiscent of dehydrated blood oranges. There is seemingly endless dark velvety fruit entwined with spice which linger carried by elegant fine tannins.
This Shiraz was sourced from a vineyard located in the gateway to McLaren Vale. The fruit from this vineyard has lovely structure giving solid backbone to the wine with intense mid to back palate presence.
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.
