Vibrant aromas of black fruits, blueberries, black cherry and black currant. Followed up by a spicy hit of white pepper. Luscious palate of fresh black fruits. Black currant, plum and dark cherries. The palate is delicate with soft tannin and great intensity of flavour with hints of toasty caramel and a spicy finish.
2021 Howard Vineyard Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyard: Clover Farm (Mount Barker). Elevation: 380-410 AMSL
Winemaking: The fruit was picked early from low yielding 24 year old vines . Grapes were picked in the coldest part of the night to preserve fruit quality and retain freshness. Pinot Noir is picked fractionally more ripe to give richness and fruit definition. Chardonnay is picked very early to provide structure to the blend. All parcels are fermented separately with assemblage occurring after 3 moths of age.
2021 Howard Vineyard Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with all chargrilled meats.
