Riverina , Australia
Crimson red in colour with a bouquet of fresh berry fruits with a touch of spice and vanilla oak. On the palate it has vibrant berry and dark cherry flavours with smooth soft tannins and a hint of sweetness that gives a long, lingering finish. A mild summer with a long ripening period and lower yields resulted in good natural acidity and some of the best varietal flavours seen for many years. The Shiraz for this wine was selected for the ‘lifted berry’ characteristics that are quite notable. Fermented on its skins for five to seven days, at 20 - 24°C, in American oak casks.
