Audrey Wilkinson Winemakers Selection Shiraz 2015
The 2015 vintages will be one of the great vintages of the Canberra Wine District. The season started cool and dry, with good rains in December and then a cool wet January. It finished with a dry, warm February and March. Harvest began early, and fruit quality is considered very high.
The grapes were crushed and cold soaked for 6 days and then fermented in traditional 5 tonne open pots, fermenting for 7 days with plunging 3 times a day. The wine was pressed and put to 100% French oak to undergo maturation for 9 months. Blended, filtered and bottled.
Bright red colour with vibrant purple hues. Abundant ripe cherry and blackberry aromas. Medium bodied, displaying the distinctive pepper and spice of the region. Silky tannins add a long, textured finish. Audrey Wilkinson Winemakers Selection Shiraz can be enjoyed now, or over the next 10 years.
