Margan Family

Margan Wines Shiraz

Hunter Valley :: Australia

http://www.margan.com.au/

Estate::

Margan Wines owns over 320 acres of vineyards and a state-of-the-art winery in the Broke Fordwich area.

Grape varieties::

100% Shiraz

Vinification::

This Shiraz was fermented under relatively cool conditions with a structured aeration program, allowing for full fruit expression without over-extraction of tannins.

ageing::

Aged in 4 & 5 year old French oak hogsheads for a period of 18 months to allow the wine to soften and mature.

appearance::

Dark plum in colour.

nose::

Displays ripe berry character with hints of black pepper and regional earthiness typical of Hunter Valley Shiraz.

taste::

Palate length is enhanced with subtle integration of new oak which adds complexity and depth to the wine.  Although drinking well now, the firm tannic structure will ensure that this Shiraz will develop further over the next 7 - 10 years.

Food pairing::

Slow braised lamb shoulder with baby spinach, peperonata & eggplant caviar.

Closure::

Metal screwcap.

Ratings::

5 Star Winery in the James Halliday Wine Companion each consecutive year from 2009 to 2018.
