Dark fruits & cinnamon, intermingled with toasty vanillin oak, precedes a long lasting, pepper & spicy tannin finish. The medium - full body, firm tannin and fruit vibrancy of this wine ensure it has many possible food matches.

Winemaking Notes

The Blue Pyrenees Estate Section 1 Shiraz 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 1” or block 1 of the Estate Vineyard. So from 2013 vintage, the new name Section 1 was adopted for this wine made from these 45+ 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, before gentle pressing to extract all the colour, flavour & natural tannin from the skins. After pressing the wine is settled or
a few days only, then 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.
