Bannockburn Shiraz 2015

Geelong, Victoria, AustraliaFrom volcanic soiled vineyards, this shiraz was 20 percent whole bunch fermented and on skins for 2 weeks before 16 months in French oak (20 percent new) prior to blending and bottling. This was the first time the winery used whole bunch on shiraz, previously just utilizing it for pinot noir. Ripe and rich with sunbaked red fruits, potent red florals, cinnamon bark spicing on a plush palate. The whole bunches cut a knife edge green / branchy swatch through the overripe fruit, creating a little discordance on the palate. I reckon pork tenderloin would go a long way to amend.Tasted: 05 February 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 65.00 private wine shops Producer: Bannockburn VineyardsDistributors: Sur Lie
