Margaret River

Varietal: Shiraz
Current Vintage: 2014
Bottle Size: 750ml
Case Size: 12

Tasting Notes:

Each parcel of fruit is gently crushed and transferred into small open fermenters. Heading down boards keep the cap submerged for better skin contact. The fermenters are temperature controlled to provide optimum conditions. Gentle extraction is achieved by the draining of wine from the skins and returning back over. Wine is then transferred to French oak barrels for maturation. 

95 Points - James Halliday (2014 Vintage) says
Estate-grown, matured in French oak. Offers very good varietal and regional expression, with ample blackcurrant/cassis fruit, balanced tannins and subtle French oak on the medium to full-bodied palate. Sure fire development ahead. Gold medal WA Wine Show '15.

The Margaret River is recognised as one of the best Bordeaux-like regions outside of France and produces wines in a very unique European style, much different than the rest of Australia.

Barbecued meats, steak, chocolate, Szechuan cooking and venison.
