Alpha Crucis Shiraz 2019

Special Price $70.00 Regular Price $85.00
The winery's best fruit was handpicked and wild fermented on skins before pressing into French oak (15% new) for just over a year. The end result is the best Alpha Crucis Shiraz made to date. Rich, powerful and harmonious, this channels dark fruits, chocolate, olive tapenade and spice with immense concentration but also an inviting plushness.

Fruit is sourced from Chalk Hill’s heritage vineyards. The soil comprises washed sand over clay, which limits vine vigor and hence reduces the number of grapes on each vine. Concentration and intensity are exceptional. A stunning wine replete with a superb intensity of fruit and great structure.
