Product Description

Morambro Creek Shiraz

Region: Padthaway, Limestone Coast.

Vintage: Current Vintage (enquires welcome)

Winemaker: Ben Riggs

Colour:Deep inky black & purple in colour.

Aroma: The nose is perfumed with violet, blackberry, vanilla and spice with a touch of earth and liquorice over white pepper in the background.

Palate: Expansive palate, smooth lush ripe back fruits nicely balanced oak, plenty of concentration with a long finish.

Winemaking Report: Winemaking at Morambro Creek is very traditional and labour intensive. Oak maturation takes place using 35-40% new barrels both French and American. In good cellars, Morambro Creek Shiraz can age for anywhere from 7 to 10 years. This blend was put together using select barrels from our family estate that best demonstrate the intensity of our fruit balanced by integrated oak.

Vintage Conditions:It started out full bore with the usual warm February weather. All our grape varieties started to ripen at the same time making it one of our most compact vintages to date. Vine-balance was carefully monitored, resulting in fruit that demonstrate the vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive for in our wines.
