Picardy Pemberton Shiraz 2017
Special Price $30.00 Regular Price $32.00
If you are into Rhone wines, this is the Aussie Shiraz for you. Medium bodied with a slightly richer texture than we were expecting based on our experience of previous vintages. Pepper, spice, earth and florals here along with smoked meats, spice and plentiful tannins. Good now with a decant, should be a ripper in 5-10 years.
Picardy grow wines old school, with no irrigation, hand pruning and picking and around 3 tonne per acre fruit load. Fermentation is carried out relatively cool, at 28-32 degrees c to maximize fruit freshness and eliminate the possibility of stewiness in the finished wine. As per the Picardy mould, it is approachable in youth but designed to build layers of complexity with age.
