100% Shiraz sourced from Sandra's block, located about 5km south of Mitolo's Chinese Block in the McLaren Vale region of South Australia.
Fruit was destemmed and crushed gently, then pumped over once daily for around 10 days. The ferment was kept cool throughout, and the wine kept in a combination of about 10% new and one and two year old barrels, mainly of French origin, for 18 months before being blended. The final blend was clarified by racking only, and bottled without fining or filtration.
Blackberry bramble, plum, and cassis perfumes blend with subtle mint and dried herbs. This Angela Shiraz is a true reflection of vintage, with the low yields producing concentrated wine of a more savoury nature and great structure. Blackberry, olive tapenade, tar and cassis flavours are balanced with bright acidity and subtle vanillin from oak ageing.
