Toolangi Pauls Lane Shiraz 2019

RRP: $44.00
95 Points - Halliday Wine Companion 2021
92+ Points - The Wine Front
Tasting Notes: A perfumed nose of roses, spiced plum, smoked charcuterie and fennel seed. The palate is medium bodied and full of flavour and personality. Dark plum and boysenberries with plenty of spices , it’s the rocky tannins that flow on speaking proudly of Toolangi.
Winemaking Notes: Harvest: 19th of March
Vinification & Elevage: Fermented as 40% whole bunches, 60% as whole berries. The wine is pressed after 3 weeks on skins to French oak for indigenous malolactic conversion, then sulphured on lees. 10 months in oak, then racked twice prior to bottling.
Viticultural Notes: Established in 1995, Toolangi Vineyards is in the Yarra Valley adjoining the Toolangi State Forest. This single site vineyard on fine clay loam soil and produces grapes wines with distinctive personalities, each wine showing a strong sense of place. This Shiraz is made from low cropped and hand harvested fruit from a selection of rows 11-23 of D-Block, PT23 clone on Paulsen rootstock from 2001 plantings.
Optimal conditions for flowering and fruitset in the vineyards gave well balanced yield with plenty of promise leading into the 2019 harvest. A dry January and February followed, culminating in a relatively compressed vintage, though attention to detail in the vineyards gave winemakers wonderfully balance fruit with concentration of flavour and exceptional natural acidity.
