The plushest wine in the range. Plums, mulberry, blackberry and rosemary. It’s quite full bodied, but freshness is the key. Weightless energy and an appealing forest/autumnal leaf drop characteristic. Slippery palate, which is curious as there’s no whole bunch, so it must be skin tannin from a very gentle extraction. Utterly drinkable, and one of the finest bistro wines made in Australia.
Mallaluka estate shiraz. De-stemmed and fermented with indigenous yeast. Sangiovese from Gundagai region with whole berry fermentation. No fining or filtration. Cool climate spice coupled with warm climate ripeness.
