2016 'Moates Lane' Shiraz
Dark garnet red with a purple edge.
Clean pronounced developing aromas of blueberry and raspberry fruit with a peppery intertwine of sweet toast and forest floor.
Full-bodied flavours of fresh blackberry and ripe strawberry over a subtle peppery oak background, finishing perfect length and balance.
Sourced from 30 plus year old Pyrenees Shiraz Vineyards. Fermented on skins in small open fermenters and stainless steel tanks for 8 to 10 days. MLF was
encouraged on skins and completed in tank prior to aging in French and American oak barrels.
Any roasted meats, with potatoes, pumpkin and green beans.
A relatively cool summer made for one of the best vintages for many years
with harvest taking place weeks later than usual and the slower ripening
providing more time for flavour development and more intensely flavoured
