THE FRUIT BAT 2010 Single Vineyard Shiraz
DetailsAn old shearing shed on the property is home to tiny fruit bats that live in the old hessian wool sacks. Plenty of lift on the nose, just like its neighbouring vineyard, Little Venice. It shows more white pepper and fennel, mulberries and plums too, mixed with a pinch of dried flowers. A peppery fennel entry to the palate, very fresh and spicy, a touch of fresh black olives with juicy raspberries coming to mind as the most obvious fruit. The tannins are elegant, long and mineral. There's a vibrancy here with moreish texture and fine balance. REVIEWS 94 Points - James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion, 2014 Edition The vineyard is one kilometre from the winery, the soils half brown loam on limestone, and half sandy loam on limestone. Bright crimson-purple, the fragrant bouquet leading into a supple, medium-bodied palate with juicy, sweet red fruits, structure coming from fine tannins and subtle oak. Drink to 2030.
