2016 Whister Estate Shiraz

$55.00

Sold in cartons of 12



FRUIT SOURCE
Entirely from our Heysen Estate Vineyard, this wine is a blend of all three clones of our Shiraz- Kalimna 3C, 1654 and BVRC30. Deep loam over clay, with outcrops of quartz stone and ironstone.

WINE MAKING
Harvested as separate clones and fermented wild in old concrete fermenters. Foot stomped and basket pressed, then stored in 70% American and 30% French oak for twenty months. The individual clones are then blended together to make a more complex wine. Bottling with no fining and no filtration.

THE WINE

Our take on the classic Barossa Shiraz, this wine has a inky purple colour with a deep red hue. Aromas of dark plum, coffee and black pepper. The palate is rich and voluptuous, with the classic blue fruits and smooth silky tannins. This wine has great capacity to age and will continue to soften and develop more secondary fruit characters.

TECHNICAL DATA
Alcohol: 14.0% pH: 3.49 T.A.: 6.95g/l

RECOMMENDED CELLARING
This wine will cellar well until 2030.

REVIEWS

93 Points – James Suckling – June 2019

92 Points – Gary Walsh (The Wine Front) – May 2019  “From the Heysen Estate vineyard, planted 1994. Black fruit, sage, mocha and toast, a little spice with it. Full-bodied, savoury and toasty, coffee ground tannin, plump and lively fruit, acidity perhaps a little twangy, with a good long finish. Traditional feel, in a positive way”
