Product Description

The 2015 Red label Catlin Shiraz is from a single vineyard in Macclesfield. It was picked in several parcels and fermented in several small fermenters. It was mostly crushed and destemmed with some whole bunches being added. This wine was wild fermented and spent some time on skins post ferment. It was then matured in French oak for approx 11 months. It displays great flavours of plums and raspberries. It has firm tannins with out being big and finishes with a lovely acid line. This wine is eminently drinkable now, but will continue to improve for the next five years and beyond. It displays a spectrum of tightly coiled fruit from blueberries and plums with underlying subtle spice.
