This is a soft, rich and cuddly number, not really what you’d expect from Coonawarra. Gorgeous ripe red fruits infused with dollops of chocolate and finished off with pepper and spice. It’s a smooth and tasty mouthful with no harsh not harsh notes or edges getting in the way; sheer pleasure. 
94 points - Kim Brebach, BWU20

The 2018 Coonawarra Series Shiraz consists of a regional blend from the northern part of Coonawarra which is slightly warmer and better suited to rich Shiraz. Majority of the blend is from Tim Kidman’s block, with a smaller parcel coming from Rob McLeod at Tirricke Farms.

The 2018 vintage was an exceptional vintage with even ripening producing fruit with full flavour and excellent quality.

  • Picking occurred between 15th of March and 4th of April - the fruit was harvested and destemmed in the vineyard leaving us with the individual berries only, and putting the organic material back into the vineyard. The grapes were fermented in both open and closed top fermenters for an average of 10 days on skins. Closed fermenters are used to retain aromatics while open top fermenters are used for flavour and colour extraction. Malolactic fermentation was completed in stainless steel and then the blend was put to old French oak Barriques and Hogsheads for 8 months on average prior to bottling. The Coonawarra Series wines are made in an accessible style from younger vines, these wines will reward immediate drinking but also benefit from medium term cellaring.
