Eyes

Ruby red colour.

Nose

Aromas of spice & ripe red fruits over vanilla oak.

Mouth

The ripe red fruit notes give way to a sweet chocolate & vanilla mid palate, then mint-like spice with balanced acidity. The soft tannin structure of this wine allows lingering fruit flavours to shine throughout the long dry finish.

Winemaking Notes

Shiraz produces Australia’s most notable dry red wines. The variety is very successful on sites that allow the vine to attain flavour ripeness whilst retaining balanced levels of sugar, tannin & acid. Blue Pyrenees Estate Vineyard is one such site. The 2016 Blue Pyrenees Shiraz is produced from many different parcels of Estate grown fruit, grown on low-yielding exposed vines creating a wine of intense flavours & naturally soft tannin yet with classic, rich Shiraz structure. The warm 2015/2016 growing season provided early rains, but was finished by a warm dry summer & autumn which made ripening to optimum easy for Shiraz of this region & vintage. Maturation for 24 months in a combination of new to eight year old American & French oak barrels has added softness, texture & complexity to a wine of Pyrenees varietal fruit flavours.
