The Château Single Vineyard Shiraz 2007
Sold Out
Tasting Notes
‘The Château’ Shiraz is a classic Barossa Wine. Rich and powerful with numerous layers of underlying fruit. The sweet berry aromas give way to strong earth, leather and cedary characters. The wine is complex and mouth filling with warmth and tannins and a Châteauness that sets it apart.
Winemaking
The grapes were destalked (separating berries from the bunch) and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel open fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 7 days on skins at 22 - 28° C. The skins were gently pressed in the JLB Vaslin Bucher press giving a soft tannin structure to the wine. Finally the wine was left on its lees to give texture and mid–palate weight along with 18 months barrel maturation in a mixture of French and American oak hogsheads (300l).
Vineyard Notes
Selected from the estate vineyards along with four parcels of fruit from the best sub-regions within the Barossa. Vine age was up to 60 years old.
