2017 Moorooduc McIntyre Shiraz, Victoria, Australia
Single vineyard Shiraz showing off the unique terroir of the McIntyre vineyard. Aromas of black roses vie with black plum fruit, black pepper and some lifted cardamom spice. On the palate the wine is savoury and dense, with flavours of black berry, plum chutney, peppercorns, and earthy richness. Firm, drying tannins linger long and this wine just cries out for a plate of slow cooked lamb with mint and cumin! 14%
Wild yeast fermentation followed by 100% French oak maturation (20 % new barrels) then 15 months in wood. Unfined and unfiltered.
