Warner Vineyard - 2015 The Rest Shiraz

“The cold start to the 2015 vintage resulted in a slightly later than usual harvest, allowing the development of complex flavours balanced with ripeness. Taking carefully selected fruit from each of our Shiraz vineyards, indigenous yeasts were used on two parcels of fruit. The fruit from our main Shiraz block was divided between whole bunch (75%) and destemmed (25%), with the fruit from our second block fully destemmed. After twice daily pump over/aerations before tapering off to irregular punch downs this wine was pressed to a combination of new and aged French oak. Whilst in barrel, malolactic fermentation was undertaken and the wine was left on full lees for around 14 months before racking and bottling, unfiltered and unfined.” – winemaker notes
