2011 White Label Shiraz Dozen – Warramate

$240.00

Medium-weight & restrained in style, the palate builds with latent power, drawing up all its inherent elements of season & situation to marry with the aroma-enhancing & tannin-supporting herbal components contributed by stalk addition to the ferments.

All fruit at Warramate is hand-picked and delivered direct to the winery. The fruit was mostly destemmed & crushed directly to a series of 1.5 to 2.0-tonne capacity open-fermenters. A select number of vats received addition of whole bunches. Total maturation time for the components was 24 months prior to assembling & bottling. All blend components were aged in 100% French oak, (10% new).

An intense & fragrant aroma of dark cherry, rose, flint & green peppercorns is underlined by complexing savoury earthiness & charcuterie notes. Medium-weight & restrained in style, the palate builds with latent power, drawing up all its inherent elements of season & situation to marry with the aroma-enhancing & tannin-supporting herbal components contributed by stalk addition to the ferments. Basil & blood plum flavours are supported by juicy acidity, long-grained tannins & subtle oak influence.
