McGuigan Private Bin Shiraz

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The fruit for this wine was sourced from our vineyards in South Eastern Australia. The climate is hot with high evaporation rates and generally low rainfall, making irrigation essential. The climate is also continental, resulting in long sunny days and noticeably cooler nights. Long sunshine hours ensure fruit ripens fully and low relative humidity results in little incidence of disease.

 

WINEMAKING

The Shiraz grapes were picked just as the the flavours were at their prime. Harvest was carried out in the cool of the evening and the fruit was crushed and fermented on skins delivering the rich colour. The wine was then matured in a combination of stainless stell tanks and on oak, before filtering and bottling.

 

TASTING NOTES

A soft, juicy and flavoursome Shiraz highlighting mellow aromas of plums, dark cherries and spicy oak. This wine displays a medium bodied palate of soft juicy dark fruit flavours. Mocha oak and savoury tannins add length to the palate. The wine is youthful and well balanced. This wine pairs well with a range of dishes including light salads, fresh pasta and seafood dishes.
