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.
2019 Vintage: This was a challenging year and so very much makes you think of Australia. It was a warmer vintage with only sporadic rains in some parts causing the berries to ripen sooner than prior years. Through great vineyard, water and canopy management the resultant fruit is bright and flavourful with a soft acidity. This is a vintage showing up front fruit flavours and perfect for drinking from the get-go.
Tasting Note: A varietal and regional nose that is typically McLaren Vale. A distinct and vibrant nose of
dark fruits with hints of chocolate and spice. Delicious Shiraz palate that shows off layers of dark fruit concentration, great weight and texture, a hint of complexing oak and a long, robust finish. Pair it with lamb shanks.
