The grapes for this Rouge Shiraz were picked and crushed during the cool of the night, thus ensuring the retention of varietal character, while modern winemaking techniques were employed throughout, all of which help to create the signature XV style. Fermentation took place in sweeping arm red fermenters, giving the wine a denser, richer colour and allowing for gentle flavour extraction. Careful attention was also paid to the oak selection for the Rouge. This wine was aged on French oak for approximately 8 months, giving the wine a noticeable, but not an excessive oak influence.
Wine Harvest Notes
It’s a wrap for another season and once again Mother Nature has dished us out a few challenges! Due to an extremely hot January vintage began a week or two later than normal, and once we got picking whites and reds rolled in at a cracking pace. White yields were lower than anticipated whilst reds were on par with previous years. Overall it was another great vintage with bright and fresh whites and beautifully coloured, rich reds.
My XV Rouge is a classic Australian all-rounder! Made with food in mind, this easy drinking red is the perfect companion to beef, duck or lamb dishes in every style. The perfect bottle to share with friends who love wine.
