2017 La Lune Shiraz
Style: Savoury and refined, single vineyard, fully certified biodynamic and vegan friendly.
The inspiration: This Shiraz comes from our favourite block 6, a plot that produces unique wines that speak of the site.
Open fermentation bucketed out by hand so it could be gently pressed using our neighbour’s little basket press. Careful use of tight grain French oak barrels that enhance rather than compete with the distinctive fruit characters. Very much a cool climate wine where spice and florals make for a unique and elegant style that packs a punch in flavour intensity. Low sulphur.
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.
