Brokenwood Bunkhouse Shiraz 2018 (12 x 750mL) McLaren Vale, SA

Winemakers Comments

The 2018 vintage in McLaren Vale is being touted as producing wine of excellent quality. Total tonnages were down for the season, however the drier conditions prevented excessive vigour or disease problems. Favourable ripening during February led to fruit in great condition at picking.

Vinification

Machine harvested, combination of open and roto fermenters. Not overly pumped over, as soft tannins are required. Oak maturation 100% French.

Winery Tasting Notes

Perfect Shiraz colour with deep purple hues. Lifted dark cherry and ripe blackberry aromas. Rich in flavour, the fine tannins from the fruit and oak balances the sweet fruit. This distinctive Brokenwood style Shiraz showcases the unique characteristics of the McLaren Vale region.

Food

Veal, duck and cheese.

Drink

Very enjoyable over the medium term, and will reward long term cellaring.
