CHRISMONT Shiraz 2018
In a region better known for its flourishing Italian varietals, Shiraz has found a home in the King Valley thanks to its Mediterranean climate of warm days and cool nights. We enjoy this wine for its vibrant, spicy flavours and finely toasted oak aromas, and its ability to match with a wide range of cuisines.
COLOUR: Dark crimson red.
AROMA: Blackberry, plum, and black pepper spice with a toasty oak background.
PALATE: Plum and dark berry fruit with ground spices. Fine, medium-bodied palate that finishes with dry velvety tannins.
“The grapes are crushed into small open fermenters then spend seven days on skins before being drained into new and older French oak Hogsheads to complete primary fermentation. Racked from barrel to remove gross lees, the wine is returned to barrel to be matured for a further 12 months before being blended and prepared for bottling. This wine is then released after an extra six to
twelve months age in bottle.” Warren Proft, winemaker
The quintessential mid-week wine! Enjoy it with silky homemade pasta, wood-fired pizza, or a steak straight off the grill.
