96 Points & Special Value Wine Jane Faulkner for James Halliday Wine Companion

The Shiraz (50%) Mourvédre (50%) is sourced from old low yielding vineyards in Ebenezer, Stockwell, Greenock and Bethany. The yield was between 1 to 1.5 tons to the acre.

 Fermented in 1 and 2 tonne open fermenters, the Shiraz and Mourvédre are fermented on skins for 7 to 8 days at a cool temperature to enhance the pure berry fruit and is hand plunged 3 times daily. It completed primary and MLF in oak and then matured for 20 months in oak, matured on lees to maintain fruit pro­le and animation, minimal SO2. Topped up every 3 weeks.

 This blend shows fragrant and complex blueberry, spice, earth chocolate and leather aromas wafting from the glass. This complexity carries through to the mouth with intense sweet/savoury ‑avours dominating. The texture is silky, viscous and mouth-­lling with lively acid and ­ne tannins providing great balance and structure.

“50/50%, 20 months in French oak (50% new). While there’s more grunt to the tannin structure via the integrated oak, shiraz and mourvedre unite their flavours and shapes into a harmonious whole. Vibrant red plums, cherries and blueberries sprinkled with chocolate shavings, cinnamon and crushed juniper berries. Velvety tannins, full-bodied and beautiful detail from start to finish.” – 96 Points & Special Value Wine Jane Faulkner for James Halliday Wine Companion
