Fanning the spectrum of berry fruits this enticing example shows the refreshing essence of Shiraz.
Moreish strawberry, cherry and cranberry flavours are derived from the short time on macerated berries before drawing the wine off for a cool controlled fermentation.
Textual characters of guava and floral notes are further enhanced from a short oak maturation.
The grapes were night picked as soon as they reached ripeness to retain the freshness of Shiraz and also the crisp acidity. The wine was fermented to dryness. A further dimension to this style was gained from aging the base wine in French oak barrels.
