2018 Epic Drop Shiraz
Style: Rich and generous.
The inspiration: We have a great deal of faith in the ability of the cooler wine region of Mount Benson and rich red soils of Wrattonbully to consistently deliver elegant and stylish Shiraz.
Vibrant aromas of plum, black cherry and spice. Wonderful richness on the palate, held together by a well knotted oak profile.
This is my other favourite wine to make. It's not the massive block buster that Australians have come to expect from Shiraz but it still packs a punch in density without any over-ripe characters. We source and blend this wine from the best barrels of our grower’s fruit, with a goal of uncovering the optimal balance between palate intensity and bright, vibrant fruit.
Cellaring: This wine is drinking well now however over the next ten years it will become softer and more savoury if you prefer an aged style.
Food pairing: Most char-grilled foods find a soul mate in Shiraz. This more robust style of Shiraz would suit the rich flavours of venison, kangaroo and duck.
