2018 Limited Release Shiraz

(1 customer review)

$49.99

There are beautiful, vibrant, spicy dark fruit aromas enhanced with roasted meats and seductive hints of cocoa. The powerful, yet elegant palate has lovely raspberry and blackberry flavours with silky tannins and wonderful texture. This wine is perfect with red meat right now but will harmonise further in bottle over the next 5-10 years.

Description

The fruit in our Limited Release Shiraz is grown at Moppity Vineyard, Hilltops NSW, at 500m altitude. Vines were cropped very lowly producing impeccable ripe fruit. Only 160 dozen were produced. Reduced tonnages together with a warm and dry vintage has produced a ripe, bright and powerful Shiraz with great concentration and balance.

The powerful, yet elegant palate has lovely raspberry and blackberry flavours with silky tannins and wonderful texture. This wine is perfect with red meat right now but will harmonise further in bottle over the next 5-10 years.

For best enjoyment, let breathe for an hour before serving. As this wine was minimally filtered, some harmless crystals could form in time.

Drink now until 2030.

    A warm vintage in the undulates of high country, at 350m elevation. Machine picked, a bane. Fermented warm. A rewarding 3 weeks on skins, a positive. 12 months in oak. A rack-and-return to mitigate reduction while maximising solids to juice. Not restrained, to be sure. Not much tension, either. But what there is, is delicious in an obvious hedonic fashion, playing to our weaknesses: blueberry oozes across the vanillan oak. Dried seaweed and clove. Sweet and sappy, without being jammy. Easy.
