Plantagenet Mount Barker Shiraz 2013

£23.99

TASTING NOTES

Dark cherry and blackberry flavours with underlying spicy, peppery and tobacco notes which distinguish Shiraz from this cool-climate region. A velvety, textural palate with layered complexity and fine, silky tannins supporting the dense, dark fruit. An elegant, classic Great Southern Shiraz with a long life ahead.

Fruit is sourced  from the Wyjup & Bouverie vineyards with a small portion sourced from their oldest grower - Charleston vineyard. All the vineyards grow on free draining gravel loams around the Mt Barker area in the Great Southern region of Western Australia.

The wine underwent a ten day ferment, with very gentle maceration during fermentation at moderately warm temperatures and gentle slow pressing. The wine‘s structure was enhanced with the use of 40% new tight grain, French oak and was aged for 18 months before blending, filtration and bottling.
