Richly flavoured with spicy plum, dark fruits and smooth vanilla and chocolate from oak maturation the fine structural tannins give it great length on the finish.
This Rutherglen Shiraz is a dry red wine that would perfectly match grilled red meats or earthier dishes such as gourmet sausages or a duck risotto. The blend is quite versatile and would also suit rich tomato based pasta dishes.
While drinking beautifully on release, this Australian shiraz will benefit from medium term cellaring of three to five years.
Shiraz is Australia’s favourite red grape and a Rutherglen treasure. We are lucky enough to have very old vines, with all the intensity and depth of flavour that they bring. Shiraz is a pleasure to work with because of the way it carries flavours and aromas specific to the region - even the vineyard block, and layers these on top of a base of rich, soft plummy fruit.
The fruit was destemmed and crushed into our 7 tonne open fermenters. During fermentation the cap was plunged 2-3 times per day to gently extract the colour and tannin from the skins and seeds. Once ferment was complete the wine was pressed off using our 1883 hand-cranked wooden basket press. This old press is very gentle and allows us to create a very elegantly structured wine. The finished wine was matured in a combination of new and old oak puncheons and barriques for 16 months. It was bottled in October 2016.
Being full flavoured and carrying firm but fine tannins this is a wine that will repay careful cellaring. Put it away for five years or more.
It is a long held truth in the Old World wine regions that the local wines and local foods go together. Australia is beginning to understand this and we are seeing many local wines well suited to local produce. A classic match is our Shiraz with a herb crusted rack of locally reared Rutherglen Lamb.
