Eyes

Bright ruby red.

Nose

Fragrant ripe blueberry fruit aromas plus pepper, mushroom & toasty oak.

Mouth

Dark fruits & licorice intermingled with toasty vanillin oak notes, precede a long lasting, pepper & spicy tannin finish. The medium weight but firm structure & fruit vibrancy of this wine ensure it has many possible food matches.

Winemaking Notes

The Blue Pyrenees Estate Section One Shiraz wine was formerly known as Reserve Shiraz but year after year the majority of this wine is made from the oldest Shiraz vines known as “Section One” or block one of the Estate Vineyard. So from 2013 the new name Section One is adopted for the wine made from these 40+ year old vines. These robust old vines weather the variable vintage conditions better than any others & exhibit strong regional & varietal characters when approaching maturity. The grapes are co-fermented to dryness in open & closed fermenters with a small amount of Viognier grapes before gentle pressing to extract all the colour, flavour & natural tannin from the skins. After pressing the wine is racked to barrels, new to four year old French & American oak barriques for secondary fermentation & 24 months maturation before
final barrel selection, blending of those barrels & a light egg white fining before bottling.
