2018 The Red

2018 The Red

The Red 2017 is made from 100% elegant cool-climate Shiraz. One the nose there's notes of pepper, eucalyptus, toasted vanilla.  On the palatte it's seriously tasty with flavours in the mulberry and red fruit spectrum, a hint of charry oak and slightly gamey notes working beautifully with the fleshy fruit.  It has a generous round mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Hand-picked, destemmed, wild-fermented, pressed to wooden foudres for 7 months maturation. Blimey, this should set the website up in flames. Terrific hue. It's spicy, it's got shards of licorice, black fruits on bough or forest floor, and tannins are its (and your) friend, giving it the structure needed. Halliday Wine Companion 2020
