2016 Basket Press Shiraz

GRAPE VARIETY:Shiraz
VINTAGE:2016
REGION:100% One Tree Hill
ANALYSIS:14.5% Alcohol
CELLAR POTENTIAL:This wine is approachable upon release, but will benefit with careful cellaring between 8-12 + years
COLOUR:High black/purple intensity, with red hues.
BOUQUET:Displays deeply scented aromas of blackcurrants, truffle and dark chocolate with underlying subtle oak characters.
PALATE:A supple, rich and juicy entry of dark berries, plums and spice. The tannins are rounded and integrated, with a long silky finish.
VINEYARD & VITICULTURE:Sourced from four low yielding vineyards from Southern and Northern One Tree Hill, with an average yield of 2.0 tonne per acre.
WINEMAKING:Crushed and destemmed to open top fermenters, where cooling was employed throughout the fermentation between 18-28oC. There was two pump overs and one hand plunge every day to optimise flavour, colour and tannin extraction. After 7-10 days of primary fermentation, the fermented wine was then gently Basket Pressed to a settling tank for 2 days, where it was then racked to new and seasoned French oak barrels to undergo Malolactic fermentation.
STORAGE/MATURATION:20 months in new & seasoned French oak Hogheads.
