Fermentation was undertaken in Vinimatics and static fermenters with manual pump overs every 6 hours.
Upon completion of alcoholic fermentation, the wine remained on skins for a further two days before being pressed into American and French hogsheads for 14

The McLaren Vale Shiraz Winemaker's Comments
Impenetrable, inky red in appearance, with a youthful crimson hue. Brooding aromas of blue and black fruits, over layers of allspice, cardamom, espresso and earth. A rich, full flavoured palate of blackberry and bramble fruit melded with earth, dark chocolate, and roasted coffee bean.
WINE & FOOD MATCH
This Shiraz should be enjoyed with hearty red meat dishes such as Beef Burgundy or Osso Buco.
