Region: Clare Valley
Bottle size: 750 mL
For many years Clare Valley Shiraz has captivated wine enthusiasts with its power and elegant synergism. This wine follows that style; graceful yet flavoursome, gentle enough to enjoy on its own or great with a diverse range of food. This full-bodied wine has aromas of lifted violet, blueberry and red fruit with nuances of creamy vanilla due to American oak maturation. The rounded palate is full of dark cherry and ripe raspberry flavours with hints of herb and spice, finishing with soft, silky tannins.
Shiraz from selected premium vineyards throughout the Clare Valley was fermented for a week with its skins using a mild pump-over regime. Soft pressings have been returned to this blend to enhance mouthfeel and texture. The wine was matured using predominantly American oak for 24 months before fining, filtration, further tank maturation and bottling.
It is suitable for drinking anytime from the present to ten years of age and will complement all red meats, particularly char-grilled steak!
