Clare Valley Shiraz
Current Release: 2017
Sourced from a friends vineyard in the Clare Valley, about a 1.5 hour drive north of Grand Cru Estate, the grapes are brought to the Barossa before fermentation.
We treat the wine much like our Barossa reds, so a slow fermentation and 12 months oak maturation.
Ripe red berry fruits, some lovely spice and hints of eucalypt, herbs and some refined French oak characters.
94 Points: Sam Kim MW
The wine is sweetly fruited and elegantly lifted on the nose showing dark plum, sweet raspberry, floral, warm spice and toasted almond characters. The palate is succulent and beautifully rounded with lovely fruit vibrancy and intensity, wonderfully complemented by fine texture and polished tannins.
