2017 Clare Valley Shiraz - Sevenhill 2017

32.00

VINTAGE 2018 RELEASE - APRIL 2019.

From a 25 year old vineyard in Sevenhill that hasn’t had any herbicides or pesticides applied for a couple of years now. Final blend has about 50% whole bunch in it. About half of that was untouched on stalks for a month prior to being basket pressed to an old puncheon. The balance was gently foot trod every few days and had about six weeks before seeing the basket press to aged barriques. It was picked very early for Clare standards, is 13.4% alc/vol and has great natural acidity and brightness. The stalks have brought out a broody, dark and savoury edge and the early pick has kept it light on its feet, ensuring you will want to go back for more. Watch this wine develop in the glass and over time.
