The Third Generation Shiraz from Nugan Estate
We harvest the Third Generation Shiraz in the cool of night to preserve its delicate flavours. We then crush and ferment this wine in stainless steel tanks. The wine then receives some aging with predominantly American oak, but also some French oak.
When tasting the wine, on the nose we have lifted berry fruit aromas with a hint of earth and some pepper. On the palate, lifted berry fruits, some spice and silky tannins. This wine goes perfectly with red meat dishes, particularly beef. Managing Director, Matthew Nugan, loves to have the Third Generation Shiraz with a steak, but it also goes terrifically with spaghetti bolognaise. We hope you enjoy this wine from our third generation winery.
The Third Generation Shiraz from Nugan Estate Winemaking
An incredibly mild summer with above average rainfall is largely responsible for prolonging the harvest which ensured slow even ripening of the fruit. We harvest the fruit for this Shiraz at optimum ripeness in the cool of the night to preserve delicate fruit flavours. After picking, the fruit was crushed and fermented in static tanks with automatic irrigators. Thereafter, the wine underwent cool fermentation to
maintain a fruit driven style with some components receiving French oak during fermentation to add complexity and structure.
Deep purple in appearance with youthful crimson hues. Lifted ripe berry fruit aromas, with hints of earth, pepper and dark chocolate complimented by sweet red berry fruit flavours with spice and a silky tannin finish.
WINE & FOOD MATCH
Perfect partner with red meat dishes. Try with peppered beef fillet with fresh asparagus and horseradish cream.
