Farm Hand One Of A Kind Shiraz (6pk)
|Categories for this Product:
Vineyards: Sourced from 15 year old vineyards in the McLaren Vale from vineyards that see no herbicides or pesticides - the result is pure Shiraz fruit that sees just a small amount of irrigation.
Winemaking: Sourced from low yielding organic Shiraz vines primarily in McLaren flats (a cooler part of the Vale). After fermentation consigned to barrel for 6 months in 20% new French oak and the rest in older large format barrels. Quality fruit handled well like this will ensure comfortable cellaring for 5-10 years.
2020 Vintage: Yields were down in the Vale in 2020 due to extreme heat and poor flowering but the quality was excellent across the board. Resourceful use of irrigation helped throughout vintage and later ripening was a bonus ensuring fruit was at optimum when it came to picking. 2020 will be a vintage to enjoy now or cellar in the medium term.
Tasting Note: On the nose this is classic McLaren Vale. A seductive assault on the senses of dark fruits with hints of chocolate and spice. Delicious fruit vibrancy on the palate that shows off layers of dark fruit concentration, great weight and texture, a hint of complexing oak and a long, full flavoured finish. Pair it with a traditional roast beef.
