Over the Top Shiraz 2018
Story: Acknowledging the very best site, climate, vines and production techniques, this Shiraz is named Over the Top to proudly declare our aim to make the finest wine we possibly can.
Vintage: The 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.
Nose: The nose offers a big bouquet of raspberries and cherries with a dash of pepper and other spices.
Palate: The palate is big, rich and seductive with the berry fruit following through, complemented by a hint of minerality and great structure on the lingering finish.
Pairing: Go retro and bring out the carpet bag steak! For you younger ones, that’s a scotch fillet steak stuffed with oysters and wrapped in bacon.
Oak maturation: 30% new French oak for 20 months.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2030 (VF)
