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.
Intense aromas of mulberries, plums and black cherries, interwoven with nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves.
Fresh juicy red berries, plums and black cherries lead into a vanilla custard mid palate with hints of toast, coffee and mocha. The youthful tannins complete the experience with an injection of fresh toasty oak on the finish.
Cool temperatures during ripening in Feb and March preserved the bright colour and gave us a red berry fruit flavor profile in the fruit. Harvest was slightly later than usual, with most fruit enjoying the cooler ripening conditions and became flavor ripe at moderate sugar levels. Each batch was open 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.
