Gold Medal, Cairns Wine Show 2012
Awarded 4.5 stars by James Halliday
Let this rich, award-winning bottle of shiraz that embodies near perfection speak for itself during a quiet drink with business clients or associates. Produced in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia, the thin soils and warm summers harness the Shiraz’s natural vigour that results in intense flavoured fruit.
The unique winemaking process of this bottle gave birth to an unforgettable, distinctive flavour. After the grapes were crushed, they were lovingly fermented in five tonne open fermenters for a total of eight days. Then, the gentle pressed free run and the pressing fractions were blended together. Following four days of settling, the wine was racked to oak to ensure the best quality and crystal clear wine.
This wine has the depth and structure to develop further complexity and intrigue over time. Enjoy the peppery aroma with red meat, roasted red meats, hearty casseroles and fine cheeses. Perfect for the quiet dinner meeting with a potential client, partner or to solidify a budding business relationship.
