2021 Shiraz Riesling

Variety: 95% Shiraz, 5% Riesling

We picked the Riesling and Shiraz for this wine from our vineyard on the same day and co-fermented the two varietals together in stainless steel to achieve the lift of the Riesling through the Shiraz.  This wine was aged in seasoned French & American oak for 8 months, to achieve softness and delicacy of flavour without overpowering the soft fruit flavours.

This unique blend is a soft, approachable red with an expressive bouquet of bright red cherry and spice.  The traditional Shiraz flavours of black fruits are lifted with the inclusion of riesling which transports the flavours to the top of the palate, expressing flavours of red fruit, cherry & baking spices.  The tannins are soft & supple – perfect for drinking with lighter foods or through warmer weather.
