2019 Leaf Series Shiraz
Machine picked fruit was brought into the winery and de-stemmed to a static fermenter for a cold soaking period to capture colour from the skins. The must was fermented up to temperatures of 25 degrees C and pumped over once a day to extract soft tannins from the skins and seeds. Post fermentation the must was pressed off to a selection of French oak barriques to complete malolactic fermentation and a maturation period.
Seductive layers of rich ripe fruits of the forest, exotic spice and oak complexity with silky tannins and a long satisfying finish.
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.
