2016 Black Sage Vineyard Shiraz
Lots of dark cherry, baking spices, and a hint of finely ground white pepper on the nose. The palate consists of rich dark fruits, some baking spices, vanilla notes, and an undertone of coffee mocha. The supple tannins and lively acidity both contribute to the long finish on this full bodied wine.
The wine was fermented in open top stainless steel tanks and was manually punched down twice daily for 14 days. The wine went through malolactic fermentation in barrels and was then aged in a selection of French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels. After 15 months of aging, it was racked off and filtered before bottling. 100% Shiraz
Food Pairing Notes
This full bodied wine stands up to big bold flavours, such as prime rib, peppercorn steak, wood-fired pizza and herbed rack of lamb, the classic Shiraz pairing.
