*NEW* Joining the Spice Trader Shiraz Cabernet is this straight varietal shiraz. Made for immediate drinking and attractively priced this shiraz is a great place to start your wine adventure!
Boasting nuances of dark fruit from sweet blueberry to savoury black olive, a punch of flavour that tapers off and leaves a lovely spicy peppery note.
The Shiraz was de-stemmed, crushed and pumped over twice a day for ten days. The wine matured for 12 months in oak prior to bottling.
2014 followed the classic road of a late vintage accompanying a late Easter. Deep soil moisture from a traditional winter flood bolstered us against the warm summer days, as did the cooling Langhorne Creek winds. We were spared the late February rains that harried other regions in South Australia.
