Bleeding Heart Shiraz (12pk)
|Categories for this Product:
Grape Variety: Shiraz
Region: South Australia
Winemaker: Corey Ryan
Summary: Bleeding Heart Wine was born from a shared passion in the wines and vineyards of South Australia. The ancient soils and moderate climate create rich and full bodied wines that are incredibly satisfying. Few that experience the lifestyle of food and wine or the beautiful landscape could argue that it is not better a bleeding heart than none at all.
Winemaking: The fruit is partially hand-harvested before de-stemming and cool fermentation in small two tonne open fermenters with regular hand plunging. Matured in seasoned French oak for six months before bottling early to maintain freshness.
Vintage 2022: A wet spring provided adequate soil moisture going in to the growing season. Windy and rainy conditions during spring resulted in lower than usual crops. The summer months were mild facilitating a long ripening period and excellent tannin, acid and flavour balance in reds. Beautifully perfumed reds with full flavours, an exceptional vintage!
Tasting Note: A bright, lifted nose of plush red fruits, chocolate and subtle spices. The palate is rich with flavours of cherry, blackberry and firm tannins making it perfect with a chargrilled steak.
