CW Winemakers Series 2017 Shiraz
Limestone Coast leading to harvest was cool to cold and dry with significant rain. Cool night-time temperatures, helped develop stable flavours and tannins. Winemakers were able to commence harvest with lower grape-sugar concentrations, with good parcels harvested before or at Easter. Showcasing new Reds typical of cooler vintages.
Sourced from selected Shiraz vineyards located in the premium growing area of Limestone Coast.
Fruit was fermented to dryness on skins. Following pressing, clarification and blending, the wine was matured on French and American oak for 12 months prior to bottling.
Most char-grilled foods find a soul mate in Shiraz. And don’t just think red meat; eggplant and capsicum are great too!
This 2017 Shiraz is an intense fruit driven wine with abundant bright black fruit flavours and a rich round palate. Lingering dark red fruit, Shiraz spice and subtle oak complete this easy drinking style that is ready for immediate enjoyment.
