Product Description

Region: Yarra Valley

Vintage Current Vintage (Enquiries Welcome)

The Grape

Called Syrah in France where it is widely grown in the Northern Rhone and in the Midi regions. It generally produces well coloured fruit with good flavour and with reasonable yields. Shiraz certainly has produced some great wine in Australia and is now well sought after by our overseas customers.

The Winemaking 

Following harvesting the grapes were crushed, de-stemmed and pumped into tanks for fermentation. Traditional fermentation techniques of pumping over to extract colour and flavour were followed before the skins were pressed and the wine transferred to mainly American oak barrels for maturation. After 18 months in wood the wine was blended and bottled.

The Wine

The 2009 vintage produced some big rich wines with the Shiraz a standout for the reds. The wine shows dark vibrant red colour with mocca, black cherry fruit aromas and a full soft palate of sweet plum balanced by fine firm tannins.

 

Sweetness: Dry

Food Match A great match with many hearty dishes including full flavoured pastas, roast beef, steaks and casseroles. Also well matched with full flavoured cheeses.

Cellar A wine that drinks well now but will reward with further ageing to  produce a more complex superb wine.
