2020 White Gravels Hill Shiraz
Colour: Bright garnet with a scarlet hue
Bouquet: A complex nose with layers of aromas including saucisson, pepper, rhubarb, lavender, plums and freshly turned soil
Palate: A plush rounded palate full of red savoury fruits and finishing with long velvety tannins.
Cellaring: This is a young wine and is best cellared for at least two years. It will soften and gain complexity for ten years or more.
Pairing: Try with a medium rare scotch fillet steak and a red wine mushroom sauce.
Vintage: A hot and dry growing season meant the vines ripened quickly and crops were lower than average. Sufficient water supply ensured the grapevines remained in good health and a cool February ensured all the natural acidity was retained at harvest. The grapes had bundles of concentrated flavour and lots of vibrant acidity.
