Winery Tasting Notes
Cool climate Shiraz notes of red berries and pepper
Succulent ripe plum notes with spicy savoury edge.
Peppered steak with creamy mushroom sauce or slow-cooked venison with juniper berry and shiraz jus. Try cheeses with more intensity like Gruyère or matured cheddars.
While delicious to drink young for its primary fruit characters, this wine will gain in complexity with cellaring for up to 5-7 years.
Picked at optimum ripeness from the ‘Whispering Hill’ vineyard, the fruit is then de-stemmed but not crushed. Cold macerated with a moderate ferment, yeasts are introduced to increase aromatics and texture. Following fermentation and extended maceration, the wine has been matured in new and old French oak barriques increasing texture.
