This Shiraz was fermented under relatively cool conditions with a structured aeration program, allowing for full fruit expression without over-extraction of tannins.
Ages to 4 & 5 year old French oak hogsheads for a period of eighteen months to allow it to soften and mature.
Dark plum in colour this wine is displaying ripe berries.
Hints of black pepper and regional earthiness typical of Hunter Valley Shiraz.
Palate length is enhanced with subtle integration of new oak which adds complexity and depth to the wine.
Slow braised lamb shoulder with baby spinach, peperonata & eggplant caviar.
