Shiraz is Australia’s favourite variety, and its big, bold and full-bodied reds from regions such as the Barossa Valley have helped put Australia on the world wine map. Its spiritual home though is France’s Rhône Valley, where it is known as Syrah and produces wines typically lighter in body and alcohol. Sometimes Australian Shiraz is labelled as Syrah to indicate its specific style.
Fermented in small open fermenters, with some whole bunches using wild yeast and hand plunged four times a day. The free run juice and pressings were barrelled separately and matured in tightly grained French oak puncheons for 12 months.Aromatic bramble jam, plums, raspberries and spice notes follow through to a rich palate with French oak adding weight, structure and complexity.
