Description

Intense aromas of shaved dark chocolate, mulberries, wild fennel and earthy notes flow from the lifted nose, with hints of blackberry vines and custard following close behind. Well structured tannins beautifully integrate with flavours of caramelized beetroot, mulberry jam and sweet balsamic vinegar on the juicy palate, to end this dazzling Shiraz in a fine and lingering finale. It tastes excellent with slow roasted lamb shanks in red wine reduction jus, served with winter vegetables and fresh crusty bread.

Tasting Notes

Winemakers Comments

As with previous vintages, the grapes come from two main vineyards, one off the deep red Cambrian soil, the other from tougher more gravelly ground. The first gives us rich, chocolatey and earthy flavours whilst the other has more highly fragrant notes with good acid and sweet fruit. The wine that results is our take on Heathcote shiraz.

Vinification

The grapes for this wine came from a combination of vineyards. They were all kept separately during their fermentation and maturation lives. The fruit was crushed and destemmed into two ton open fermenters and hand plunged three times a day. After approximately ten days of fermentation, during which time the temperature and acid levels were monitored, they were individually pressed to tank using an air bag press.

Maturation

Finally the wine was racked off gross lees and put into barrel to finish malolactic fermentation and mature in a combination of new French (36%) and older barriques.

Appearance

Black cherry in colour.

Aroma

Shaved dark chocolate, wild fennel, mulberries and earth on the nose. Hints of custard and blackberry vines.

Palate

Caramelised beetroot with hints of sweet balsamic vinegar and mulberry jam. A beautifully integrated and complex wine. Excellent balance with fine lingering linear tannin.

Food Matching

Slow roasted lamb shanks in red wine reduction jus with winter vegetables and fresh crusty bread.
