wine notes

2013 56 Shiraz

The Fruit:

The 2013 vintage produced exceptional conditions with below average rainfall and a dry spring, resulting in low yields, yet near perfect flavour profiles. This is reflected in the overall quality of all our red wines which have outstanding aromatics, ripe fruit characters and perfectly integrated tannin structures.

The Winemaking:

The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed, before fermentation could begin in stainless steel tanks for seven days. After malolactic fermentation was complete, the wine was transferred to older
American and French oak hogsheads for maturation for 10 months before blending and bottling.

2013 56 Shiraz

The Comments:

This full bodied wine is vibrant purple with aromas of blackberry, spice and hints of cherries, which all show on the palate. It has excellent fruit flavours along with complex oak and savoury spice. Delicious with char-grilled red meat and hearty Italian dishes.
