Ferngrove Black Label Shiraz 2019

Special Price $20.00 Regular Price $22.00
This is a single vineyard wine, with all fruit sourced from Ferngrove’s Block 11. Red fruits and plums, milk chocolate and black pepper are at the forefront here and the wine has supreme balance, good length and plenty of ripe tannins. It’s lovely already but should cellar exceptionally well too.

Frankland River produces amazing fruit and, while it is less lauded than its cousin Margaret River, is nonetheless capable of delivering world-class wines and does so often. Ferngrove Wines, a regular gold and trophy accumulator, is one of the most remote wine estates in the world. The site was chosen in 1988 for its favourable viticultural location 90 kilometers from the coast. The region's valleys and slopes have that rare combination of rugged ancient Western Australian soils and the cooling influence of the Great Southern and Indian oceans. This unique setting allows grapes to ripen slowly AND fully, giving the viticultural and winemaking team time to cultivate and nurture the best possible fruit.

No one aroma can be called "typical" though blackberry and pepper are often noticed. With time in the bottle these "primary" notes are moderated and then supplemented with earthy or savory "tertiary" notes such as leather and truffle.

"Secondary" flavor and aroma notes are those associated with several things, generally winemakers' practices (such as oak barrel and yeast regimes).
