King Tide 2017 Shiraz
This delicious red delivers ripe, sweet fruit on the nose with cherry and plum aromas and a note of fresh cracked black pepper. This wine is full of flavour with earthy plum and cherry fruit flavours and a touch of dark chocolate oak. The palate is well supported by fine tannins and leads to a persistent finish.
"Beautifully ripe and perfumed, the wine shows dark plum, spiced cherry, vanilla and hazelnut aromas on the nose, followed by a flavoursome palate that’s juicy and supple. It’s beautifully rounded and bright with youthful fruit flavours, finishing long and silky. At its best: now to 2025." *93 points* Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Limestone Coast leading in 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.
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 American oak for 12 months prior to bottling.
