Every vintage I reserve grapes from our three best producing vineyards to make this wine. I love the alchemy of putting the pieces together to create this beautiful, balanced and easy drinking wine. I hope you enjoy
Region: South Eastern Australia
Varietal: 100% Shiraz
Best Consumed: 2020 - 2030
Fruit for this Three Vineyards Shiraz was harvested from three vineyard sites within Central Victoria. The must was fermented in static red fermenters and pumped over every eight hours for the ferment’s duration. Once the ferment was dry, the resulting wine was pressed off the skins and allowed to settle before allowing a natural secondary fermentation to commence. Separate parcels of the wine were aged on French oak for eight months, after which the final blending of select parcels took place.
Wine Harvest Notes
Another season by the joys and challenges that Mother Nature continually throws our way! 2018 is a very good year for quality, the season was warm and dry and we were kept on our toes as once we started picking everything ripened up pretty quickly. Intense flavours came in late this year and we held off picking to allow maximum flavour. The whites are all fruit forward, with lovely fresh acidity whilst the reds have excellent colour and flavour to match. This vintage is a beauty and subsequently we have made some cracking wines in 2018.
This Shiraz is made to be enjoyed with food. Try with Charcuturie or robust cheese. Char-grilled steak, or a rich, spicy tomato based pasta dish such as Spaghetti Bolognaise or Lasagne love this wine and work beautifully together.
