Inspired by the great Shiraz wines of the Northern Rhone in France, this wine contains Shiraz from the best elevated vineyards in Great Western and is co-fermented with a small amount of Viognier
(2%). The viognier helps brighten the colour, lift the aromatics and polish the Shiraz flavours on the palate.
A superb Northern Rhone inspired Shiraz from the cooler climes of Great Western.
Very deep dark red black core with a bright purple red hue. Fragrant aromatics of dark cherries, liquorice and violets are shadowed by infusions of clove, earth, some meatiness and peppered herbs. Medium bodied and supple on entry, there’s a feeling of refinement to the rich plum, dark cherry and liquorice fruits which hover over a complex back drop of clove, meaty characters, subtle vanillin cedar, earth and spicy herbs. Has an understated power, the velvet smooth tannins seamlessly integrated with the fruit. The finish long, elegant and savoury.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Best's ancient clone and clone 1654, plus 2% viognier, 15% whole bunches, closed fermenters for 8 days, then pressed to used oak for 12 months maturation. How can 2% viognier give the wine the exotic perfume it has, and the ravishingly seductive palate? The answer is that it's the shiraz, not the viognier. Drink by 2039.
James Halliday – Australian Wine Companion
Very attractive and vibrant red berries with spices and peppery nuances in abundance. The palate has a very silky, fleshy and juicy edge with spicy raspberry and red-plum flavors, set amongst silky, ribbon-like tannins. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
