2019 Leaf Series Great Southern Shiraz

Vintage

2019 can be considered as a challenging and labour intensive year.
Cooler than average temperatures during spring and summer, coupled with reduced solar exposure and an increase in afternoon humidity during ripening made canopy management critical to fight disease and optimise sun exposure. A great year for the more savoury cooler climate shiraz.

Winemaking

Sourced from the cooler region of Frankland River, this 100% Shiraz is harvested in the early morning. A short cold maceration was applied to extract the primary fruit character and colour. The fermentation was long with minimal extraction techniques to ensure a soft and approachable palate. Oak maturation follows.

Tasting Notes

A fine cooler climate Shiraz with aromas of ripe satsuma plums and some savoury complexity adding nutmeg spices and freshly ground pepper notes. These favours continue onto the medium to full bodied palate and are supported by ne grained, plush tannins. The Oak adds another layer including sweet vanilla notes and a smoky finish.

Food Matching

This rustic, full-bodied wine is perfect to drink with a hearty winter meal.  It is structured to match a grilled rib-eye steak or roast leg of lamb.
