The 2011 Blue Pyrenees Shiraz is produced from parcels of fruit grown on low-yielding exposed vines creating a wine of intense flavours, naturally soft tannin and the classic rich Shiraz structure. The very cool 2010/2011 growing season provided plenty of rain, but was finished by a season saving mild dry autumn which translated to late ripening for this cool Shiraz vintage . Maturation for 18 months in a combination of new, one, and two-year-old French and American oak barriques has added softness, texture and complexity to a wine of varietal flavours.

Winery Tasting Notes
Bright ruby red.
Black pepper notes over blueberry fruit and a background of cedar and vanilla oak.
The regional blueberry fruit gives way to the classic Shiraz pepper and spice notes and a vibrant mid-palate of chocolate, vanilla, and balanced acidity. The soft tannin structure of this wine allows lingering fruit flavours to shine throughout the long dry finish.
Can be enjoyed now or cellared with confidence for 10 years.
