WINEMAKING / VITICULTURE
The grapes for this Shiraz were picked and crushed during the cool of night, thus ensuring the retention of varietal character, while modern winemaking techniques were employed throughout, all of which help to create the signature McPherson style. Fermentation took place in sweeping arm red fermenters, giving the wine a denser, richer colour and allowing for gentle flavour extraction.  Softer tannins are also a result of this process, an important feature of the McPherson Shiraz style. Careful attention was also paid to the oak selection for the Shiraz. This wine was aged on American oak for approximately 8 months, giving the wine a noticeable, but not an excessive oak influence. The inclusion of some central Victorian fruit into the blend has boosted both the colour and the intensity of flavour. 

HARVEST NOTES
The growing season in 2014 presented some challenges including frost in late 2013 and extreme heat in early 2014.  Once harvesting began in late January we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the fruit and the resulting wines.  Yields were down but quality was up this year. Whites have good varietal character, with great flavour, whilst the reds have beautiful colour and flavour intensity.  

WINE DESCRIPTION
Andrews’ 2014 Shiraz is deep purple, with delicious ripe berries, plums and a hint of pepper on the palate.  This is a medium bodied wine with impressive length and a great finish.

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS
Try this wine with a hearty barbequed steak, or a rich, spicy tomato based pasta dish such as Spaghetti Bolognaise or Lasagne
