A clean and subtle entry shows ripe, soft and chewy tannins that elegantly compliment the subtle sweet flavours of red fruits, notably dark-ripe cherries. Supporting wood tannins brings the mid-palate to life with length and depth.

Description

HARVEST

2011 produced a bigger crop in general, but after vigorous bunch selection we ended with similar yields to 2010’s harvest. August 2010 was unexpectedly warmer than usual, thus bud burst occurred about 10 days earlier, yet still evenly. The growing season commenced with cool weather and some showers, which required intervention to reduce potential disease impact. Dryer conditions from November onwards resulted in smaller and more concentrated berries. 

 
COLOUR
Bright red edge with a ruby red centre. 
 
NOSE
Reflects plum and delicate aromas. Time spent in the barrel generates some coconut and a slight spiciness. The nose is forward with a medium intensity. 
 
PALATE
Clean and subtle on entry, showing ripe, soft, chewy tannins. Sweet, dark, cherry fruits are supported by the wood tannins, which allows the mid-palate length and depth. The wine has a balanced finish which allows it to be enjoyed on its own or to be paired with food. 
 
WINEMAKER’S NOTES
Shiraz for the 2011 vintage was carefully hand-picked from different sections in the vineyards which were manicured to produce 6 tons/ha.Grapes were bunch and berry sorted, crushed and destalked before going to tank. After 3 days of cold soaking at 5°C, fermentation was started. The grapes were pressed directly to barrels where malolactic fermentation was completed. This wine was matured in barrel for 22 months using 10% new and 90% 2nd and 3rd fill 225L French oak barrels.
