Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

An elegant nose with understated violet and dark plum aromas completes this classy Clare Valley Shiraz.

Palate

The Knappstein Shiraz displays typical Clare Valley style and texture. Intense flavours of blackberry, plum and cherry underpin the rich textural palate while underlying hints of menthol and chocolate intertwine beautifully with seamless sandy tannins and spicy French oak.

Winemaking Notes

The wine was made with minimal intervention to preserve fruit purity. Fermentation in Potter (static) and open fermenters, with gentle extraction of flavours and texture through pumping over once a day and hand plunging. Ferment lasted around 10-12 days. The skins were then pressed and wine allowed to settle before being transferred to barrel for eighteen months.

Cellaring

This wine will reward ageing for up to 6 years.
