2013 Shiraz

Canberra District, ACT

Rich and exotic perfume, fine acidity, and loads of flavour

From $75per bottle

    Description

    Near perfect growing and ripening seasons were the hallmarks of the 2013 Canberra vintage. Warm days and cool nights combined with low rainfall to deliver the best-looking fruit we’ve yet seen from the Dahlberg Vineyard in Murrumbateman.

    Like the Hunter’s Shiraz, the Estate Shiraz was fermented in open top tanks prior to maturation in top quality French oak. However, for this 100% single vineyard wine, we matured in barrel for an additional 3 months (12 months in total) to further enhance structure and add another level of complexity. For me, a wine like this really typifies the style and quality of Shiraz produced in the Canberra district.

    • Vineyard Notes

      The 2013 growing season in Murrumbateman was near perfect. As such, the region managed to deliver high quality fruit, ultimately proving to be some of the most expressive and intense Shiraz I’ve had the pleasure of handling from this area.

      A minimum period of 3 years, with maximum cellaring potential being closer to 15 years.

    • Food Matches
