Tasting Notes: Joyous, refreshing Shiraz, an approachable style showing black cherry, blood plum and bright acids. A twist of cracked pepper adds some savoury nuance, but doesn‘t distract from its fruit-forward, food-friendly personality. As the label says: it‘s ready to go!
Winemaking Notes: Vinification & Elevage: Fruit was fully destemmed as whole berries and had a 7-day cold soak prior to fermentation. On skins for 12 days then pressed off to finish ferment in tank, retaining freshness and vibrancy. Bottled after 3 months to be enjoyed as a versatile fun little red wine.
Viticultural Notes: Our winemaking philosophy is to produce the best fruit possible in the vineyard and allow the wines to express the indiviuality of the vineyard and each growing seaon. The grapes for this wine were handpicked with viticultural practices based around maintaining balance in the vineyards, sustainability and responsiveness to changing environmental conditions. 2022 will be remembered for the tiniest yields in a decade resulting from poor flowering conditions in our parts of Victoria. The quality of the resultant wines of this vintage however are outstanding with both concentration and finesse.
