The 2020 'Little Road' Shiraz from out McLaren Vale vineyards is full bodied and richly flavoured showing attractive persistence of flavour with a round mid palate structure and a backbone of fine grained, silky tannins.
The focus in producing this wine is to have vibrancy of fruit on the nose and palate with a tight structure and attractive mouth filling roundness. The fruit was all grown on our Estate between the McLaren Vale and Willunga townships. Following fermentation on skins, the components were pressed before dryness and allowed some oak fermentation. On the completion of malo-lactic fermentation, the wine was 're-worked' and returned to oak for further maturation.
Maturation: 13 months maturation in predominantly French oak with some American Oak. 20% New French oak, 10% new American oak, balance 2-6 year old barrels.
