La Cave Shiraz

Fruit was picked at optimum maturity and fermented dry on the skins at 25oC in open fermenters with regular punch downs. Full malolactic fermentation was allowed in new French barrels. After SO2 adjustments the wine was racked to some oak barrels and aged for 18 months.

Tasting Notes

Dark fruit aromas are nuanced with wood and spice. A palate of ripe red berry fruit and spice complemented by silky tannins.
