Excellent conditions throughout the growing season began with average winter rainfall, and a drier spring. Very hot January weather was tempered with good water management, with balanced canopies providing shade and assisting optimum ripening. Warm, dry conditions continued through harvest, promoting good flavour profiles and colour development.
14% was matured with French and American oak to enhance complexity while highlighting the fresh fruit flavours.
Red Label Shiraz is great with slow-cooked beef brisket with smoky barbecue sauce, or pepperoni pizza.
Best enjoyed in its youth, however will continue to develop over the next three years in bottle.
