2015 Shotfire Shiraz

Comments

Deep red with purple tints.  Rich and concentrated dark fruits, with charry oak and mocha notes.  The palate shows dense plum and mulberry with dark chocolate and savoury oak tannins.  The wine is intense, balanced and shows great length on the palate.

 

Vinification Notes

The grapes were de-stemmed into fermenters. Ferments were pumped over twice daily to maximise colour, tannin and flavour extraction. Cooling is used to ensure ferments remain in the 22-25 degree celcius range which allows maximum fruit   expression in the wine. Pressing  occurs approximately seven days after fermentation commences and the wine is then filled to American oak to mature (14 months in 40% new American hogsheads with the balance going into 2nd and 3rd fill barrels).

 

Vintage Notes

2015 Vintage was characterised by a dry period extending from July to  April, together with warmer than usual temperatures during Spring until mid January which advanced maturity on lower yielding vines. Mild temperatures from Mid January slowed maturities concentrating flavour and intensifying colour development.
