Product Description

Miette Shiraz is made with the off-cuts and 'offaly' bits of Barossa Shiraz that don't make it into the Spinifex bottlings. There is, however nothing second-rate about this juicy number. After all, as gastronomes will attest, those less fancied bits - I'm thinking pork belly, oxtail, beef neck etc - can be super tasty and offer ridiculous value for money vis-à-vis the marquee cuts. So it is with this lip smacking Shiraz. The fermentations were carried out with indigenous yeast in small open fermenters, prior to gentle pressing and maturation on light lees. All the components were matured in French oak (10 % new) and stayed on light lees, which helps retain fruit freshness and the supple, fleshy generosity of Barossa Shiraz. Following the blending of selected parcels the finished wine was further matured in tank prior to bottling.

Think elegance, floral delicacy, red fruits and refreshing, finely structured tannins and then look at the price. Bargain. The nose tempts with wafts of smoke, floral notes, and blueberry. This is followed by a succulent, layered and spicy palate that screams "DRINK ME". Although it's made with immediate consumption in mind, there's plenty of structure and interest to suggest it will make interesting older bones. Pleasure-bent drinking at a great price.
