2014 ESTATE SHIRAZ
HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION, 2017 Edition
Estate-grown, made at Dominique Portet, matured for 12 months in French oak. An exercise in elegant restraint, the supple medium-bodied palate with a pure stream of juicy black fruits, tannins and oak guards standing by if needed - and they aren't. Just because it can be enjoyed now is no reason to dissuade you from cellaring as much as you drink. Rating 95.
Hand picked from our Dixons Creek vineyard, Yarra Valley. Cropping level adjusted to 2.0 tonnes per acre.
Our Shiraz was hand picked at optimal fruit ripeness then berry sorted leaving only the healthiest berries. Any overripe or underripe berries were discarded. It was then fermented for 3 weeks to build a silky tannin profile and aged in barrel for 12 months to develop structure and grace.
