Shiraz Vigneron's Selection 2016










winemaker's comments



Vine age: 16 years

The vineyard on GlenWood finally achieved the desired balance to produce premium quality grapes. Well balanced growth delivers even ripeness and beautiful structure.

A fantastic red wine vintage. The grapes reached optimum ripeness with ease, and the balance between yield and growth needed minimal interference.

The best quality grapes were selected, gently pressed and fermented in half-ton open-top fermenters. The grapes were punched down by hand six times a day and fermented until dry. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel and was matured for 18 months in second-fill French oak to produce a well-integrated, complex profile.

Alcohol: 14.32%

Total Acidity: 5.7 g/l

Residual Sugar: 2.6 g/l

pH: 3.46

An opulent, full-bodied wine with supple, vibrant fruit and tannins. Spicy, white pepper, smoky aromas pervade a ripe, fruit-driven profile. Drink now or within the next 8 years.
