Fortified Shiraz

Fortified Shiraz

2019 Shiraz

Canberra District, NSW

A limited release wine created each year from the ripest and most richly flavoured Shiraz grapes on the property. With fermentation arrested by pure neutral grape spirit the result is a delicious opulent wine that tastes like fruitcake in a glass!

From $65.00 per bottle

    Description

    This wine is a true labour of love, handpicked fruit, handmade wine, bottled and labelled by hand, corked and dipped in wax to seal it. For this wine we always allow a select parcel of Shiraz grapes to partly shrivel and raisin on the vine. After being handpicked the fruit is partially fermented before the addition of neutral grape spirit known as SVR – Spiritus Vini Rectificatus. This neutral spirit allows the rich Shiraz fruit flavours to take centre stage. 24 months in an older American oak barrel integrates the spirit and wine and adds a hint of vanilla oak without overpowering the delicious sweet fruit. A perfect wine to enjoy in front of the fire this winter.
