Description

The 2015 Kirrihill Vineyard Selection Shiraz

2015 Kirrihill Vineyard Selection Shiraz , The wine is a deep, vibrant red with a bouquet of cherry, boysenberry and cranberry. Barrel maturation in French oak provides a sweet nutty complexity to the aroma. The palate shows fruit sweetness, soft tannins and a smooth seamless mouthfeel. Cellared correctly, this wine will continue to reward for up to 15 years in the bottle. The optimal drinking time is 3 to 5 years, although it can also be enjoyed in its youth.  

Vineyard

The fruit for this wine was sourced from well-renowned Schobers vineyard, located in the Clare Valley cool climate shiraz wine region. The vines were planted on a westernfacing slope, on deep red loam over limestone. The vineyard has been dry grown since planting.

Winemaking

Prior to fermentation the fruit received a four-day cold soak in open-top fermenters, to softly extract the dark fruit flavours and perfumes of the berries. Cool fermentation over a five-day period retained aromatic intensity. Regular pump-overs maximised colour, flavour and tannin extraction. The wine was pressed off skins to a selection of 35% new French oak and 65% second use French and American oak hogsheads, spending 20 months in barrel total. Rigorous barrel selection occurred prior to creating the final blend.
