Ladies who Shoot their Lunch Shiraz

2019

Colour
Vibrant, youthful purple.

Aroma
Lifted blue and dark berry, pepper spice and spicy oak.

Palate
Medium bodied, cool climate Shiraz with sophisticated layers of dark and red berries, dark chocolate, spicy oak and silky, fine grained tannins. An elegant wine with great balance, length and intensity.

2019 was an excellent year all round. Yields were very low and intense flavours developed across all varieties. We use a diversity of individual wines in barrel to work for this blend. The blending of this wine is always the most exciting event in our winemaking calendar, especially after our 2018 Ladies Shiraz was named in the Top 100 in the US Wine Spectator, we had a lot to live up to this vintage!

This wine was fermented using wild yeast, with its slightly unpredictable nature, this builds more complexity in the wine. This wine was matured in various ways over 12 months as there are many components in the blend. Some parcels were matured in new and old oak, including 150-yearold English oak casks. The remaining parcel was maintained as a fresh fruity parcel in stainless steel.
