Dark berry fruits and spicy liquorice dominate the nose of the 2018 Reserve Shiraz. There is also a subtle background character of savoury earthiness. On the palate the elegant fruit is well integrated with the fine tannin which has great coverage and carries the fruit to the back of the palate. Oak is also present but supports the plush elements of this wine without dominating the lovely character of spicy Shiraz and berries.
Handpicked in the 3rd week of March 2018. Destemmed into small fermenters, partial whole bunch fermentation. We employed a mix of pump over, plunging and pigeage a pièd. Following primary ferment the fruit was pressed straight to oak. 30% new oak, balance in aged barrels.
Bottled: February 2019
