2021 Field Blend
Bright magenta in colour
Highly perfumed bouquet of red cherry, dried cranberry and spice.
Light bodied and fresh, with acidity and fruit driving the palate. Red cherry, raspberry, soft pippy tannin, and spice to close.
The Shiraz component (80%) was destemmed, and then fermented in small open vats using cultured yeast, then press off early to tank to maintain fruit and a softer tannin profile. The Pinot Noir component (20%) was destemmed, and then fermented in small open vats using cultured yeast, then pressed to barrel for malolactic fermentation, and matured in French oak barriques (10% new) for 8 months. The wine was then blended and bottled unfined in November 2021.
Enjoy now or cellar for 2 to 4 years.
