WINEMAKERS COMMENTS This 2001 Shiraz was awarded 4 stars as a dry wine when bottled. The wine was carefully aged in bottle and a select quantity was set aside for the purposes of a future back vintage sparkling wine project.
In 2012 the wine was disgorged and tasted for optimum quality. A small parcel of younger fresher wine was blended to make the cuvee.
The wine was tiraged and underwent secondary fermentation in the bottle. After 12 months of maturation the wine was riddled, disgorged and liquored with a 1975 Tawny Port for complexity. The result is an outstanding wine with rich fruit cake like complexity, smoky chocolate, earthy leathery tones, typical of an aged Rutherglen Shiraz.
