2005 Vintage Fortified Shiraz

Sweet fortified red
Oaking: None
McLaren Vale, Australia
Detailed Product Information

Appellation: McLaren Vale
Vintage: 2005

A small parcel of premium fruit was selected to make this single vintage wine. After partial fermentation it was fortified using a blend of spirits then matured in seasoned oak for 12 months before bottling. The wine has been bottle aged in our cellars before release, it can therefore be enjoyed now or further cellared over the coming years.

Tasting Notes

Dark red in colour, this wine shows an abundance of dark chocolate, rich plum cake and spice. The fortifying spirit is clean and well balanced, keeping the sweetness in check. This wine will continue to develop and gain complexity as it ages.
