2013 Rosenvale Reserve Shiraz

$39.00

Description

Selected old vine Shiraz planted in the 1960s from our Crossings and Vine Vale Sands vineyards which produce low yields of approx two tonnes per acre to deliver the intense flavours required.

Harvested by flavour ripeness and fermented in open top fermenters and pumped over twice daily. The open cage bag press is used to lightly extract the wine from the skins and then placed into barrel where malo and ferment are completed, left to age for around 24 months in a range of new and seasoned French oak barrels. Each barrel is tasted for style then blended together.

Deep colours with a purple swirl in the glass. The aromas are dominated by dark fruit and spice which layer themselves on the palate with mouth filling tannins that have a lush drying finish just over raspberry chocolate. Acid balance in check as is the oak letting the fruit shine.
