The fruit was traditionally vinified in small open-top fermenters to optimise flavour extraction during fermentation. Temperatures remained between a minimum of 15°C and a maximum of 32°C. Fermentation lasted about 14 days, during which the cap was hand plunged and pumped over. The wine was then matured for 18 months in French oak puncheons, 15% of which were new.
Ample black fruits including blackberry and mulberry with hints of red licorice, sarsaparilla, cumin spice and a gamey charcuterie note. McLaren Vale is known as the mid-palate of Australia and this Shiraz is a testament to that with its velvety plush texture and juicy generous middle palate. The finish is supple, long and persistent with very fine, well integrated tannins.
