NEW Vintage September 2016
Grape Variety: 100% Shiraz Grapes
Vineyard Region: Orange, NSW
Vineyard Altitude: 900 m
Oak Maturation: Partial barrel fermentation and maturation in new and one year old American oak casks for 18 months.
The wine is a bright dense cherry red with a tinge of brick red.
The bouquet exhibits lifted spicy ripe fruit and light earthy plummy Shiraz aromas, combined with soft vanillin oak characters.
Full bodied, the length of the palate is filled with very youthful plummy spicy Shiraz flavours. These fruit characters are balanced by drying oak tannins which contribute both complexity and length to the wine. With a finish that is typical of cold climate Shiraz fruit crisp, clean and elegant.
This excellent example of a cold climate Shiraz has a firm sound structure for aging for at least 10 years and reflects exceptional quality from the Orange Region.
An ideal wine to accompany grilled red meats, curries, lamb, light game dishes or cheese.
