Shadow's run Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon

Current vintage

2011

A soft rich balanced blend of blackcurrant, red cherry and blood plum fruit flavours, complemented by a milk chocolate, cherry and cream mid palate.

Appearance

Bright Maroon.

Bouquet

Blackberries, red berry and plums with cinnamon, nutmeg and hints of herbs and brambles.

Palate

A soft, rich and balanced blend of blackberry, red berry and satsuma plum fruit flavours, complemented by a milk chocolate laced strawberry and cream mid palate. This ripe, juicy and elegant blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon finishes with vibrant, youthful tannins, leaving the palate clean, refreshed and looking for the next sip.

Winemaking

The Shiraz vineyards were harvested from late February to the end of March, the Cabernet vineyards from mid March till early April. Each vineyard batch was open fermented for 7 days on skins with reduced pump-overs to preserve the primary fruit flavours in the wine. The wine was then pressed off to complete fermentation in tank or old oak barrels. Most batches spend part of their maturation time in old French and American oak barrels.
