Frankland River, Australia
The Jarrah Shiraz is only made in small volumes, using carefully selected premium fruit from our oldest Shiraz vines, planted in 1971. Traditional fermentation in small open vessels, which are hand plunged 3 times daily, the Shiraz was then pressed off skins after extended skin contact. Malolactic fermentation occurred while maturing in 1/3 new French Oak followed by maturation in barrel for 18 months.
Color: Deep crimson, with ruby flecks.
Nose: Aromas of black cherries, peppery spice and chocolate.
Taste: Black cherries and plums with layers of spice and earthiness with chewy tannins on the lingering finish.
