The Winery Estate - Dixons Creek
Shiraz is one of the most compelling and grown up wines that the Yarra Valley produce. Most informed wine visitors taste the Syrah style and comment on their ethereal European style. Fruit driven, spice, graphite, gentle and textural.
Alc/Vol: 13.%, pH: 3.59, TA: 6.2g/L
The wine will continue to develop complexity and interest with good cellaring for 5-10 years.
"Hand-picked, wild yeast open-fermented, matured in new and used French oak. Archetypal cool climate, medium-bodied, shiraz. Its core of red and black cherry fruit has flecks of pepper, licorice and spice, the tannins smooth and supple, the oak totally integrated. Lovely style. 96/100"
