CHRISMONT Shiraz 2016

CHRISMONT Shiraz 2016

In a region better known for its flourishing Italian varietals, Shiraz is quite at home in our Whitfield vineyard estate thanks to the Mediterranean climate of warm days and cool nights in the Upper King Valley. We enjoy this wine for its vibrant purple-red hues, dark berry, spicy flavours and finely toasted oak aromas.


TASTING NOTES
COLOUR: Dark red with purple hues.
AROMA: Blackberries, prunes and peppery spice with a toasty oak background.
PALATE: Blackberry and plum fruit with vanilla, coffee and dark chocolate. Fine medium bodied palate finishing with dry velvety tannins.

WINEMAKER NOTES
“Grapes are crushed into small open fermenters and spend seven days on skins before being drained into new and older French oak Hogsheads to complete primary fermentation. Racked from barrel to remove gross lees, the wine is returned to barrel to be matured for a further 12 months before being blended and prepared for bottling. This wine is then released after an extra six to twelve months age in bottle.” Warren Proft, winemaker

FOOD PAIRING 
The perfect companion to lamb cutlets with a butter and thyme sauce.
