2016 "Two Steps" Shiraz - 94 POINTS

West Cape Howe WinesVintage Description:

Our Single Vineyard Shiraz is entirely from our Langton vineyard in Mt Barker. Our best blocks of Shiraz are from some of the earliest plantings in the region which are now around 40 years old; the typically low yielding vines produce fruit with great depth of colour and flavour.

Winemaking Information:Traditional winemaking followed by maturation for approx. 18 months in new French oak barriques (20%) with the balance in once /twice used barrels enhances the fruit characters and adds complexity. Ageing for 9 months in bottle before release ensures further integration and complexity.
Fruit Source:100% Mount Barker Shiraz
Colour:A rich, deep dark, crimsony red.
Aroma:Lovely smoky, spiced plum fruit aromas with some hints of star anise and cardamom.
Palate:This has the gorgeous, mouth filling spicy fruit flavours typical of our cool climate grown Shiraz. The spicy fruits, with hints of violets, are complexed by some light peppery characters resulting in a fragrant and well flavoured wine.
Cellar Potential:4 - 8 years.
