THE WINE

Where the Estate Shiraz is bright and red fruited this Tribute Shiraz is all about darker brooding fruits and spice, the more serious big sister.  Aromatics of black currant and mulberry fruits with spices of cumin and white pepper, while dark concentrated fruits and olive tapenade flow into a fine velvet tannin structure. This wine is rich and long whilst remaining refined and elegant in its reflection of the cool Yarra climate.

VITICULTURE + WINEMAKING

Select rows comprised of Bests Old Block and Tahbilk clones from our north facing ‘F’ block. Fruit was hand harvested and cooled overnight.  Then placed in open top fermenters in a combination of destemmed and whole bunches, a cool start gave rise to a slow fermentation start. Hand plunged and gently handled, then pressed upon dryness. Predominantly aged in seasoned puncheons from one to two years old.  Maturation was for 8 months before blending and maturing for a further 2 months.
