2021 Shiraz Nouveau
Handpicked. Crushed and destemmed into stainless steel. Alcoholic fermentation with hand plunging twice a day in stainless steel vat for 7 days. Pressed into a combination of older 80% French and older 20% American oak barrels for 12 months maturation. Post MLF returned into same barrels for maturation. Alc/vol: 15.5%
This wine has a personality all of its own. It is deep inky purple in colour, with exquisite black fruits and dark chocolate covered coffee beans. It has unique power and elegance, just like an iron fist in a velvet glove. With time and patience this wine will keep evolving for 10-20 years.
A food friendly wine that matches well with most Italian foods e.g. pizza, pasta, along with steak, lamb, aged cheeses and anything with black truffle
