Magnum (1.5 Litre): 100 Year Old Vines Shiraz 2016
$500.00 / bottle
A rare magnum bottling of the iconic 100 Year Old Vines Shiraz.
From some of the oldest ungrafted Shiraz vines in the world, all of at least 100 years of age.
The hand-picked grapes were destemmed, but not crushed, and spent seven days on their skins in open fermenters with daily hand-plunging and pumping over of the cap to more gently extract colour, flavours and tannins. This was followed by careful basket pressing followed 22 months’ maturation in our cellars in a combination of French and American oak (20% New).
The wine delivers classical regional characters of dense, spicy blueberry fruit and savoury pan jus. Next come hints of liquorice, plum, and all-spice all delicately interwoven.
