Simon’s Wine Craft Shiraz


This is a big gutsy wine. Aged in 30% new American oak barrels and some older French barrels have given this wine complexity and structure. It has flavours of dark plum and raspberry mixed with the vanilla from the American oak and some savoury oaky notes from the French barrels. Best lay this one down for a few years. You will be well rewarded

Notes from the winemaker

Simon says; “All grapes were crushed and destemmed. Fermentation was kept cool (20 to 26*C, typically reds are fermented at 28-30*C). Having a cooler ferment helps to retain fresh fruit flavour. The yeast strain used was from Spain and is known to bring out the fruit flavours of Shiraz while also giving the wine a ‘dirty’ character. This contributes to the complexity of the wine. The wine was pressed off skins just before fermentation had finished and was racked into a mix of newer American oak barrels and old (~ 4 year old) French oak barrels. It was aged for 15 months before being blended and bottled
