Bannockburn De La Roche Shiraz

Bannockburn De La Roche Shiraz 2015

Victoria, AustraliaA single block of old vine, close planted shiraz (10000 vines per hectare) this is Tahbilk R6WV28 clones and on volcanic debris soils, lending the block its apt name - translated as “of the rocks”. This was half whole bunch fermented with native yeast, with two weeks on skins before pressing and racking to puncheons (25 percent new), until the following August. Blue and black fruited, with a cool line of stoniness that runs through the finish. Blackberry compote, cherry leather rule the plush, heavier palate, one severely cut with the earthy twinge of whole bunch shiraz. Tannins are soft and sueded, and there's a potent red florals that pervades from top through finish.Tasted: 05 February 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 88.00 private wine shops Producer: Bannockburn VineyardsDistributors: Sur Lie
