2016 Shiraz

This wine was made with Frankland River fruit from several blocks, picked at optimal ripeness to give depth of flavour.  Harvested in the early hours of the morning, the fruit was cold soaked prior to fermentation and then matured for 9 months in French oak to build complexity.

Vintage:
A dry Winter and fleeting Spring was followed by a warm growing season with welcome rainfall in December and January leading to full, healthy canopies enabling excellent yields and great flavour.

Colour:
Vibrant crimson with magenta hues.

Palate:
Flavours of black cherries, chocolate and vanilla with layers of pepper and spice, typical of Frankland River Shiraz.

Cellaring:
Ready to enjoy now, although will gain complexity over the next three to five years with careful cellaring.

Alcohol:
14.5%
