Our Wines - 2008 Devote Greenock Shiraz

Devote

The Wine

Lifted, bright ripe red and black berry fruit. Vibrant Spice and soft oak nuances.

Firm, ripe, fleshy and full bodied. Dark brooding fruit coats the mouth, acid firms the palate, oak compliments the fruit and the tannins are ripe, rich, soft and lingering.

Yet another example of why this renowned variety makes its home in the rolling hills of the Barossa. Will age into a classic.

Enjoy now or cellar for 8-10 years.

The Winemaking

Fermented on skins in an open fermenter for 7 days and then gently basket pressed, this small parcel of wine was then transferred to new and old American and French oak for 20 months of maturing.

Once matured the wine was bottled unfiltered.
