2014 Basket Pressed Shiraz
Premium Shiraz grapes were carefully harvested for this wine, from low yielding, dry grown vines, on the slopes around the Skillogalee Homestead, standing at approximately 450m above sea level.
There is a pronounced earthiness to this wine. Aromas of blue fruits, leather and tobacco on the nose, segue into a myriad of flavours on the palate, including plum, blackberry, spearmint and dark chocolate, all solidly conveyed atop a smoky persistence. The palate is bold, fleshy and yet medium bodied.
The fruit was vinified in open fermenters, then gently basket-pressed to create a wine that is fruit driven and concentrated with velvety tannins, needing no fining. Maturation in a combination of French and American Oak Hogsheads has added considerably to the wine's character, balance and complexity. The wine will cellar well for at least 10 years but, for those without that kind of patience, enjoy sooner with red or game meats, rich pasta dishes and fantastic company.
As with all our wines, this Shiraz is vegetarian and vegan friendly!
