McLaren Vale Shiraz/Riesling
Vineyard: Cutting edge viticulture teamed with exceptional wine making has delivered a superb wine from the South Australian McLaren Vale region. The vineyard is constantly monitored and managed to deliver premium grapes.
Season: Winter rainfall was average with soil moisture wet at the time of budburst - spring. Spring rains were low with many vineyards accessing other sustainable water sources. The summer season delivered cool evenings and warm days without excessive heat. Overall low yields but a very good vintage was noted.
Wine making: 95% Shiraz, 5% Riesling. Whole bunches were hand picked and fermented on stalks in open top fermenters on top of Riesling skins for 11 days. Hand plunged twice daily, before a gentle basket press in new and seasoned French oak barriques. After 18 months of maturing and racking, was then bottled (unfiltered).
Appearance: Dark, dark red with purple hue.
Aroma/Bouquet: A lifted bouquet with the dash of Riesling. There are hints of spice and anise, amongst sweet ripe red berries.
Palate: Sweet, luscious fruit on the mid palate, with powdery mineral notes create a solid structure. There is an incredibly deep range of flavour, a mix of red and black berries complimented by vibrant pepper and leaf notes. Elegant tannins and lingering acidity help extend the finish and the overall balance is impeccable.
Food Pairing: Perfectly matched with all full flavoured foods such as Chicken liver Pate and crusty Ciabatta, Taggine of Lamb shoulder and harissa, or an assortment of field mushrooms over risotto.
Residual Sugar: NA
Production: dozen (750ml)
Cellar potential: 8+ years
