2012 First Pick Shiraz
This wine was sourced from Premium Barossa Valley Vineyards that produce consistently high quality fruit. Fermented on skins for 10 days in potter fermenters, receiving twice daily pump overs. The wine was then pressed off and transferred direct to French oak barrels (50% new) where it matured for 2 years. Careful barrel selection then took place with only the most pristine barrels making the cut into FIRST PICK. A wine that will cellar for 10+ years.
Colour: Dense blood plum red with chocolate hues
Bouquet: Dark cherry, olives and mocha with lifted spice and savoury components from the oak maturation
Palate: Cranberry acidity drives the palate with cherries, black liquorice and freshly ground coffee beans, with wafts of tomato leaf. The structure is spicy and silky with amazing length and purpose
