Shiraz made the Purple Hands way - fruit destemmed and lightly crushed (rollers open) to an open concrete fermenter, seeded via a method known as Pied de Cuve (a small percentage of the fruit was picked 5 days before main harvest and left amongst the vines allowing the natural yeast of the vineyard to commence fermentation, this was added back to the main fermentation as a starter culture), header boards allowing gentle extraction. 11 days on skin, basket pressed and transferred into 33% new French oak (500lt) with the balance into 1-4 year old French hogsheads, 20 months in oak.

Vibrant colour, aromas of plums, cherry, blueberry and dark chocolate coated licorice. The palate delivers with its fine fruit and oak tannin allowing for a very morish textured palate. Dutch cocoa flavours combined with Barossa Shiraz fruit sweetness gives a wonderful example of the region and variety.

Shiraz, or Syrah, is one of the most loved, rich and powerful red wine varieties made famous for its mineral and structured expressions from the Rhône in France and the rich and decadent fruity expressions from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Full bodied, rich in antioxidants and generously fruity, Shiraz sits proudly on the table for those that like their wine big and bold. Think violets, blackberries, plum, chocolate, pepper, black olive, liquorice, rosemary, tobacco and spice...i'm thirsty already!
