2015 ESTATE SHIRAZ

HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION, 2018 Edition

PT23 clone, hand-picked, wild yeast open-fermented, 3 weeks on skins, matured for 12 months in French oak (20% new). Bright crimson-purple; a high quality shiraz that reflects (and benefits from) the attention to detail, bunch sorting via dedicated equipment in the winery leading to whole berry sorting on the way to the fermenters. It is medium to full-bodied, its life span measured in decades, not years. Blackberry, black cherry, licorice, ripe tannins and an airbrush of French oak all contribute to a majestic palate. Rating 97.
