Flavabom, Vine Dried Shiraz
Vine Dried Shiraz
A minx of a wine that delivers flavour, depth and concentration with immediate impact. Single vineyard, vine-dried Shiraz grapes grown in our estate dirt are the backbone to this intense style. The integration of flavours, tannins and acids are hit with a judicious lashing of oak for a real flavour kick.
SINGLE VINEYARD Block 46, Scotts Creek South Australia.
WINEMAKING The 2019 Riverland vintage endured hot, dry conditions of over 35 celsius for 48 days resulting in lower than average yields giving this Shiraz great depth of colour and strength of fruit.
COLOUR Deep deep ruby.
NOSE A vanilla bouquet, combined with ripe black fruits such as plums and damsons. Some spiciness of cloves and liquorice too.
PALATE Smooth, rich and full-bodied. Juicy, vibrant fruit of blackberries and blackcurrants with hints of exotic spices and pepper. Intense and concentrated, full intense fruit flavours due to the extended ripening.
FOOD PAIRING Best served with braised lamb shanks and vegetables or a big juicy steak.
