2018 Verse 1 Shiraz
Selected vineyard parcels sourced from the northern parts of the Margaret River region were machine harvested, destemmed into static red fermenters, and then inoculated for fermentation. The ferments were routinely pumped over to extract flavour, colour and tannin. Following pressing at dryness, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation, before 10 months of French oak maturation. The resultant wine parcels were then blended, fined and bottled.
Brilliant, dark red with a vibrant red hue, this wine displays lifted aromatics of plum, mulberry and blackberry, with subtle hints of liquorice and mocha. Flavoursome and generous, the palate is silky and supple with sweet and vibrant red fruits, complemented by hints of dark chocolate and star anise spice. Fine grained tannins provide structure and length.
