Block 8 Shiraz

Block 8 Shiraz

2018 Shiraz

Mudgee, NSW

$35

    Description

    If I had to take a pallet of wine to a deserted island, this would be it.

    The Shiraz grown on Block 8 is based on clay soil, located on the lowest point of the vineyard, making this our most powerful Shiraz. The wine is certified organic and biodynamic grown and made, harvested on fruit day 16th February 2018. Matured in a 4,500L cask for 12 months, followed by 9 months in 1-year-old French oak puncheons. Typically dense in colour, the redcurrant and blueberry aroma has undertones of ironstone.

    It has the style of greatness with colour, concentration and latency - yet it drinks so beautifully all the time. We know it ages gracefully, as the ‘03 reaches its peak this year, yet this ‘18 just slips down. I guess it cuts right across the divide of two extremes. It’s strong and raw, so as a young wine it goes down a treat for those that can’t be bothered waiting, but you know it will go the distance to reward you if you do.
