Vinaceous, Snake Charmer Shiraz, South Australia, 750ml


SKU: 89406000201
Hand-picked, open-fermented, 10% whole bunches; finished fermentation and 15 months maturation in French and American barriques (25% new). Finishing the ferment in barrel isn't widely used, notwithstanding the example of Grange and top-level Penfolds red wines; this wine certainly showing how the oak is so well integrated, simply part of a wider canvas of elegant black fruits, licorice and dark chocolate, all with a lilt to their flavour and mouthfeel
