Commissioners Block Shiraz 2018 (12 x 750mL) SEA

Grape varieties - 93% Shiraz, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot

Vinification - After night harvesting the Shiraz grapes were crushed into static fermenters. After crushing the must was inoculated with AWRI 796 yeast. Controlled fermentation occurred over seven days, commencing at 24°C reducing to 20°C. Gentle Pump-overs occurred six times daily to maximise the extraction of colour whilst still retaining a soft juicy palate structure. Pump-overs were reduced to twice daily towards the end of fermentation to minimise seed tannin extraction. To avoid any harsh tannins and bitterness only free run and first pressings were used in this blend. After pressing the wines were settled before racking onto American oak for 3 months.
