Product Description

Under & Over Shiraz

Vintage:Current Vintage (Enquiries Welcome)

Region: Heathcote, VIC

Colour: Youthful red purple with crimson hues

Aroma: Bright rhubarb red fruits combine with background biscuit oak and subtle whole bunch raisined lift.

Palate: Elegant juicy red fruits and black spice with supple, savoury tannin mid palate. The palate is driven with gentle long tannins that frame the wine giving it additional supple length. The fruit leads the way with the oak playing a secondary role to support the wine whilst it ages.

Vinification and Maturation:
Selected parcels off the 2 vineyards were carefully harvested at optimum ripeness. Upon reception at the winery the fruit was carefully destemmed into a combination of fermenters where they underwent cold maceration prior to fermentation. This is to extract gentle tannins and delicate aromatics in the absence of alcohol. The Lake Cooper parcel was gently macerated for 10 days to give structure to the blend but also retain fruit brightness from this type of vessel. Colbinnabin Estate was fermented as 2 parcels. One with a small percentage of whole bunches to add another textural dimension and the other 100% destemmed and completed fermentation with a submerged cap to give additional richness.
All 3 parcels were pressed off at the completion of fermentation then matured in large format barrels for 12 months prior to blending for bottling. The new oak percentage was quite low at just 12%, enough to give some structure and to play a support role to the aromatics, ‘letting the purity of the Heathcote fruit shine’.

Alcohol: 14%

Peak Drinking: Ready for immediate consumption but will reward up to 8 years of cellaring from year of vintage.
