Product Description

Under new, hands-on ownership and with the talented young Kaspar Hermann at the winemaking helm, Toolangi have the wind in their sails. After years of (arguably) living in the shadow of the Pinot, Toolangi's Shiraz is now starting to flex its muscles. The grapes are now being cultivated and harvested with freshness to the fore and the winemaking has also been re-focused along the same lines. In short, with emphasis on elegance, balance and sustained purity, Toolangi's Shiraz wines have never tasted better. None of this should surprise really, the Yarra has long been capable of producing outstanding Syrah/Shiraz.

The Pauls Lane release--championing low-cropped fruit from Toolangi's A1 and D1 Blocks--sees a little more new oak (15%) than the Estate label, though otherwise the winemaking stays the same. Natural ferment, plunging as required, nine months in oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered. It's a more savoury expression, with earthy, peppery and gamey aromas of cranberries, cassis, red currants and blood plums backed by cedar-y oak and lifted by a fresh floral perfume. It's medium-bodied, long and complete, with a soft generous presence of spicy fruit supported by fine, dusty tannins.
