Red Baron Shiraz
The Red Baron shiraz delivers vibrant fruit with a rich soft entry leading into a blend of red berry, cherry and plum fruits framed with smooth ripe tannins. A wine to enjoy now for its fresh juicy style.
Plum and black cherry aromas jump out of the glass supported by fresh toast and blueberry muffin characters interwoven with cinnamon and walnut.
Rich front palate of plums and black cherries lead into the coffee and cream mid palate which is complemented by hints of roasted nuts and dark chocolate. The youthful tannins complete the vibrant experience with an injection of subtle structural oak on the finish.
2013 had a warm ripening season, with harvest occurring between mid February and mid March. This gave the resulting wine a powerful, dark berry fruit flavor profile and ripe, soft tannins. Timing of the harvest period was slightly earlier than most years, with the fruit enjoying these warm temperatures which allowed the development of powerful but fresh flavours that balance the richness and intensity of the wine. Each batch was fermented for 7-8 days on skins with low intensity pumpovers conducted to preserve the primary fruit flavours in the wine. The wine was then pressed off to finish fermentation in tank or old oak barrels. Most batches spend part of their maturation time in old French and American oak.
- Alcohol 14.5%
This wine is made to be enjoyed now while it is fresh, young and fruity.
