Eyes

Deep ruby red.

Nose

Distinctly ripe Pyrenees Shiraz with red berry fruit, licorice & spice notes all supported by classy French & American oak influences.

Mouth

The blueberry, mushroom, earth & spice flavours are all fruit derived but they have been crafted into a wine of great mouth feel by careful oak & tannin management. The long lasting spicy aftertaste is a delightful way to finish this Shiraz.

Winemaking Notes

The Richardson Series of wines are produced from exceptional batches of grapes identified by the Blue Pyrenees winemakers as having the potential to make an iconic varietal red wine as a tribute to the late Colin Richardson. The 2013 Richardson Shiraz is predominantly from the oldest (Block One) Shiraz vines on the Blue Pyrenees Estate vineyard. These grapes displayed a great intensity of regional & varietal Shiraz characters as they reached optimum ripeness & balance. Vinification included a tiny amount of cofermented Viognier, cold soaking pre-ferment, warm primary ferment & then 2 weeks extended maceration on skins. Secondary fermentation & 24 months maturation in new & two year old French & American oak barriques ensured complexity, smoothness & integration of all flavour components before bottling in June 2015.
