A powerful cool climate Shiraz with finesse offering peppery spice and ripe red fruits all tied together by firm yet silky tannins and fine oak resulting in a complex palate that is long and elegant on the finish.
Block 9 Shiraz was handpicked then de-stemmedcrushed into open fermenters and inoculated. The ferments were pumped over with aeration three times a day; temperature was held around 25°C. The wine was then pressed to new and used French Oak barrels for its Malo-lactic fermentation, allowing a soft integration of the grape and oak tannins. The wine was blended, fined with egg whites and bottled after 18 months barrel maturation and further aged in bottle before release.
