The Château Single Vineyard Shiraz 2010
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

Lifted aromas of blackberry, blueberry and black pepper supported by spicy dark berry fruits on the palate. The finish is long and framed by elegant, fine grained tannins from eighteen months maturation in new and seasoned oak.

Winemaking

The grapes were picked separately and each block was 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 10 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 new and seasoned American and French oak.

Vineyard Notes

The grapes for this year’s Château Shiraz were grown on the sandy loam soils of blocks 11 and 15 of our Bethany vineyard which was originally planted in 1960.

Impenetrable colour; this is dark and dense Barossa Shiraz with fruitcake spice, black fruits and a tarry aspect that provides complexity and interest; long, warm and with ample chewy tannins tailor-made for lovers of rich wines.
