12 Month French Oak
Blackcurrant and cranberry fruit, anise and black pepper.
With rich, concentrated fruit, this superbly varietal Shiraz has been enhanced through maturation in fine French oak to exhibit cinnamon and cedar nuances.
A fresh juicy acidity and gentle tannins makes this easy drinking. Blackcurrant and blueberry fruit length finishing clean and fresh.
2017 started well with good flowering giving us hope of a good cropping year after the small 2016 vintage. It ended slowly and as with any vintage changing many times along the way. March arrived, as did the rain, causing everyone concern - thankfully we weren't hit heavily as some other areas. The weather cooled heading into April but the sun came out and slowly reds ripened. 2017 was a long and interesting vintage, with the fruit staying on vines many weeks later than previous years creating great flavour development. A great vintage.
