    Tasting Notes

    Rich and intense, the 2015 Spice Trader Shiraz over delivers in spades. Pepper and black spice dominate the nose while the fruit builds in the glass. On the palate are found the warming richness of dark berry fruits and spice that bring joy to the hearts of all Shiraz lovers.

    Vinification

    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.

    Vintage

    Good winter rainfall provided cover crops for a moisture-retaining mulch throughout the dry spring and summer. The lack of rainfall over the growing period led to lower yields. Summer saw mostly cool temperatures and an early vintage with most of the region’s fruit off by early April. The Langhorne Creek wine region benefits from cooling afternoon breezes from Lake Alexandrina and this season was no exception. The welcome breezes helped keep overnight temperatures down, enabling fruit to maintain natural acidity.
