Quick Description [+]
The 2020 Shiraz is a beautifully balanced, fruit and spice-driven wine.
It'll pair fantastically with a wide range of foods and is very approachable upon release. Further complexity will be gained if cellared correctly for 5+ years
Abundant spice and black pepper flavours intertwined with fresh blackberry and plums.
Medium-full bodied with a soft, silky mouthfeel and gentle, yet long-lasting, finish.
Picked late in the season to obtain maximum ripeness, then fermented for 14 days in warm, open fermenters. Regular hand-plunging was employed.
Pressed when sugar dry and put straight to oak. Complete malolactic fermentation was undertaken whilst on full lees. Matured in fine-grained French oak for 16 months, 30% of which was new.
