The Last Stand Shiraz
Premium quality fruit and mature vines have produced a wine with great balance, length and fruit intensity. This attractively fruity Shiraz in a cooler-climate style has concentrated mulberry and soft plummy fruit flavours and smooth savoury tannins.
From ancient Victorian soils in order to achieve a wine with greater finesse, purity and structure as well as typical eucalypt flavours and saline finish associated with the area. Picked at night and crushed within an hour of picking before being sent to the fermentation tanks. The Shiraz grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled tanks maintained at 22 – 25ºC to avoid extracting any harsh tannins, with the fermentations pumped over to extract good colour. 20% of the final blend is barrel aged.
