Fortified Shiraz 2018

$65.00 inc. GST

Flavours of stewed blackberries, plum, vanilla and spice and a touch of fire created by the 20% alcohol content. Vintage notes What began as a side project for our own personal consumption has turned into one of our most sought after wines. This wine is made in the traditional Australian fortified style which was previously known as Vintage Port. Vintage fortified wines are made from a single vintage or year and are aged primarily in bottle instead of cask to retain their colour and fruit flavours. Each year we select the ripest and most richly flavoured Shiraz grapes for this wine, we allow the fruit to partly ferment and then arrest the fermentation with pure neutral grape spirit known as SVR – Spiritus Vini Rectificatus. The wine is a labor of love—it is hand crafted, hand bottled, hand labelled and hand dipped in wax. The wax seal can be easily removed and it does have a cork so don’t throw out that corkscrew just yet! Another hot summer and warm autumn ensured great ripening but the cooler nights preserved fruit flavour. The very ripe Shiraz grapes were allowed to partly shrivel and raisin on the vine. After being handpicked the fruit was partially fermented before the addition of pure grape spirit. Using neutral pure spirit instead of brandy spirit allows the rich fruit flavours to take centre stage. 24 months in a mature American oak barrel has integrated the spirit and wine and added a hint of vanilla without overpowering the fruit.
