Winemaking:
The Jarrah Shiraz is only made in small volumes, using carefully selected premium fruit from our oldest Shiraz vines. Traditional fermentation in small open vessels, which are hand plunged 3 to 4 times daily, the 2011 Shiraz was then pressed off skins after extended skin contact. Malolactic fermentation occurred while maturing in 1/3 new French Oak followed by a maturation in barrel for 20 months.
Vintage:
An extremely dry winter was followed by a warm growing season with intermittent and timely rainfall resulting in vines producing low yields of intensely flavoured fruit.
Colour:
Brilliant deep crimson with dark garnet hues.
Nose:
Lifted aromas of dark cherry, plum and tobacco leaf.
Palate:
Vibrant flavours of black cherry and plums with a lively acid profile interwoven with savoury black pepper, leather and fine grained tannin structure.
Cellaring:
Ready to enjoy now, but will gain further complexity over eight to ten years with careful cellaring.
Alcohol:
