2018 La Lune Shiraz
Style: Refined and elegant, single varietal and vineyard from Mount Benson. Fully certified biodynamic.
The Inspiration: This Shiraz comes from our favourite block 6. Concrete fermented. Balanced use of tight grain new and seasoned French oak hogshead and barriques barrels to provide added structure and finesse without inhibiting the fruit purity that we get from this block every season.
Tasting notes: Very much a refined and unique cool climate wine that oozes style and elegance. Pure red fruits with a brooding undertone of dark berries. Still a smooth wine with a plush tannin structure that has been provided by a touch of time in oak.
Cellaring: This wine is drinking well now but will age beautifully in the bottle over the next 10 years. You may however have to hide it if you want to keep it for that long though!
Food Pairing: This is our most elegant style of Shiraz so bust out the finery and make an occasion of it. Think strong hard cheese, rare meats like kangaroo or beef and chocolate to finish.
