Description

2017 Karrawatta Langhorne Creek Joseph Shiraz

2017 Karrawatta Joseph Premium Shiraz, Small berries, low yields and open bunches characterise the Shiraz grown on Christo’s Paddock. These old vines produce grapes with great flavour intensity and richness, which are hand selected before being gently pressed. Once the fermentation was complete the wine was pressed into a combination of new (40%) and old French oak barrels, where it matured for 18 months.  Expect red and black berries, licorice and dark chocolate with a toasty, savoury edge and soft round tannins providing great structure and length.
