    Moodemere Shiraz

    Style Medium-bodied with rich dark fruit flavours and grippy tannins

    Cellaring 3 to 5 years
    Food Match Rosemary and macadamia nut encrusted Rutherglen lamb with smashed potatoes
    Size 750ml

    A fruit-driven, medium weight wine with aromatic blue fruits, bright blackberry and charry oak notes. Grippy tannins gives the punchy yet elegant palate length and depth. A touch of vanilla and spice from barrel maturation rounds off the palate.

    Our Shiraz grapes were picked at night to preserve fruit flavours, and transferred immediately to a mixture of open-top and rotary fermenters. Fermenters were hand-plunged daily to extract tannins and colour. The wine was then transferred to a mixture of new and old hogsheads, both French and American. Oak was carefully selected to bring out the flavours and the tannins in the wine while adding a touch of complexity and length to the palate. The wine was left to mature in this oak for 11 months.
