2017 Estate Shiraz / Cabernet

0 review Write a Review

Josh Pfeiffer

Grown on our Estate at Whistler Wines, Seppeltsfield Road, Stone Well, Barossa Valley. The Shiraz is a combination of our original plantings from 1994, with three different clones of Shiraz- Kalimna 3c, 1654 and BVRC30. The Cabernet Sauvignon is clone D3V14 planted in 1997 on a lovely south-east facing slope with lots of broken quartz in the soil.

Traditional open fermentation in old concrete fermenters using wild yeast, foot stomping and gentle basket pressing before going to oak. This wine was matured in 20% new French and American oak hogsheads along with 80% older French and American oak for 20 months before blending and bottling with no fining and no filtration. The final blend is 70% Shiraz and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Deep red colour in the glass. This is a classic Barossa blend of Shiraz (70%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) with loads of dark fruit and dried herbs on the nose, with hints of dark peppermint chocolate. The palate is full of soft dark fruits and tight tannins which indicates that this wine has a long life ahead.

Alcohol: 13.5% pH: 3.59 T.A.: 6.43 g/l

Drinking wonderfully now, but will cellar well until 2029.
