Philip Shaw The Idiot Shiraz
AA3076

£17.50
In stock

Description

The Idiot does not follow the rules of convention; a fool to some, a genius to others. We embrace the unconventional and complex character of our shiraz. Not afraid to make a statement, this wine captures the playful, eccentric and unique elements of shiraz from our cool climate. The Idiot is dark garnet with a purple hue. This cool climate Shiraz is true to its region and variety. It has a fragrant bouquet with juicy red fruits and blueberry. The palate is succulent yet elegant. It has bountiful fruit and spice finishing with fine savoury tannins.

VINIFICATION

All grapes were destemmed and hand sorted. Berries were split and tipped into open vats for fermentation. Native yeasts carried out primary fermentation imparting layers and depth. During fermentation the wine was managed carefully to obtain balance and structure. The wine was pressed from its skins and seeds, and racked to oak for maturation. The wine was left to evolve in oak for 10 months before blending for bottling.
