Red Wine with an Edge

2015 Estate Shiraz

 

Fruit comes mostly from our 15 year old unirrigated Jackson's Lane vineyard, South Heathcote, where the fruit is always powerful and masculine in style. The balance comes from the left over portion of the old original 1971 block vines. 25% whole bunch fermentation and 30% new oak maturation for 2 years prior to bottling in March 2017. Concentrated fruit intensity with a soft but firm tannin finish, will continue to soften and gain complexity over a number of years.
