Gemtree Vineyards Uncut Shiraz 2019

McLaren Vale, South Australia, AustraliaUncut is the first-ever Gemtree wine, and today it reflects the vineyards and winery work over the last 22 years. It is made from biodynamically grown vines spanning 20-60 years, fermented naturally in 5-8 tonne open fermenters before ageing in French oak puncheons, 500L, and 225L barrels for 12 months (20% new). The wine is aged on its lees with minimal racking, thus essentially Uncut. As a result, the fruit is exceptionally pure, mixing blueberries and red berries perfectly spiced and oaked. The style is full bodied and spicy with black licorice and a savoury, almost saline undercurrent.Tasted: 17 March 2022Tasted by: Prices: BC 29.99 select private retailers AB 29.95 select private retailers Producer: Gemtree Vineyards Pty LtdDistributors: Andrew Peller Import Agency
