Wines - 2019 Second Take Shiraz

Second Take

The Wine

 

Straight up the first thing you notice is the bright crimson red colour with dark purple hues, which set
up the aroma profile of captivating deep earthy forest dark fruits.
On the palate this Shiraz is medium weight, smooth tannins, long depth of forest fruits but with this
beauty of lightness that is delicate and alluring.

The Winemaking

 

Fruit for the Second Take Shiraz was hand picked at the end of February and placed into Puncheons
for 100% whole bunch fermentation (also known as Carbonic Maceration). Allowed to sit in barrel
and ferment for 14 days to give stunning aromatics and brightness, the fruit was liberated from
barrels by our east coast distributor team Franc About Wines who split in teams in a bid to hold
bragging rights. Victoria won the race but there may have been a few less bunches in their barrel.
Basket pressed and matured in older French oak Puncheons for 11 months. Small portions of three
other vineyards were added to the final blend to bring structure and balance to the wine prior to
bottling unfined and unfiltered. Final Blend is 62% Whole Bunch
