Shiraz has found a home here in the coastal regions of South Australia. Long, warm summers ensure the grapes achieve full fruit and tannin ripeness, resulting in expressive aromas, a velvety texture, and a finish that keeps going. The iron rich red-clay soils of the Limestone Coast produce black fruit driven wines with a slight spice.
Ripe bunches of Shiraz are harvested during the cool evenings and brought to the winery where they are destemmed, crushed, and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. A cooler fermentation temperature helps minimize tannin extraction and preserve the grapes characteristic peppery aromatics.
Inky purple in color with aromas of spicy blackberry, red plums, and a seductive smokiness, this wine is round and juicy with subtle notes of olive and vanilla on the finish. Enjoy with savory short ribs, hearty beef stews or a juicy cheeseburger right off the grill.
