Tasting Note

Deep and brooding with black cherry, dark chocolate, coffee and freshly turned earth. Aromas are clear and well delineated. Complex, layered & fine with terrific finesse. It opens with ripe black cherry, mocha and sweet spices unfolding silkily across the palate. Despite its power and polish, it has remarkable elegance with all its components in beautiful balance. Fine, ripe tannins and perfectly judged acidity frame it all boding well for excellent cellaring potential. While rich and expressive now, the greatest rewards await those with the patience to allow it to slowly evolve in a cool cellar.

Winemaking

Hand harvested, destemmed and crushed to 2 tonne open top fermenters, pumped over twice daily for 10-14 days. The ferment was kept cool (18-22°C) throughout in an attempt to extract the tannin, colour and flavour very softly. Once pressed, the wine was transferred to 100% new French Hogs Heads for natural malolactic fermentation for approximately 18 Months maturation, after which each barrel is considered for the final blend. The final blend is clarified by racking only, and bottled without fining or filtration.

Vineyard

Marsican Shiraz is a prized blend of our finest barrels from three distinct single vineyard sites in McLaren Vale. Situated only kilometres from the cooling breezes of the Gulf St Vincent, these three vineyards are the source of our prized single vineyard Shiraz’s, Savitar, G.A.M. and Angela.
