Gillie and Marc Clare Valley Shiraz 2016 (6 x 750mL) Clare Valley, SA

Once received in the winery the fruit was crushed, destemmed and received a three day cold soak to gently extract the dark and brooding characters of the berries. Fermentation was kept at 20 degrees Celsius to retain the aromatic intensity. The ferments were pumped over four times daily and had two rack and returns during the ten days on skins. This helped maximise colour, flavour and tannin extraction from the skins. The wine spent 9 months in a combination of American and French oak barriques (30% New) and went through a rigorous barrel selection prior to blending and bottling.
