2017 Blue Pyrenees Dry Grown Shiraz
Deep ruby with purple hues.Nose
Fragrant ripe juby blueberry fruit aromas plus herbs, spices and toasty oak.Mouth
Dark plum fruit, mushroom and earth, intermingled with pepper & regional anise notes precede a long lasting, fine tannin rosemary flavoured finish. The medium weight but firm structure and vibrancy of this wine ensure it has many possible food matches but try Greek style lamb.Winemaking Notes
The Dry Grown Shiraz is made exclusively from the Blue Pyrenees Estate vineyard. The 2016 / 2017 growing season certainly delivered good rains and easily allowed “dry growing” The wet spring resulted in above average crops and good vine growth which in turn provides shade for the warm dry Autumn finish. The result is a ripe concentrated regional dry Shiraz. After 2 weeks on skins, then pressing, the wine was racked to barrels, two to ten year old French and American oak barriques, for secondary fermentation and 24 months maturation. Final barrel selection, blending of those barrels, and a light egg white fining occurred before bottling in 2019.
