Over the Top Shiraz 2017
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: Spring and summer were cooler than normal with above average rainfall and the 2017 vintage happened much later than usual. The combination of those factors and dry weather for most of the harvest resulted in higher yields and excellent quality across regions.
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 2029
