2019 Passel Estate Shiraz

2019 Passel Estate Shiraz

2019 Shiraz

Margaret River, Western Australia

A gentle style of shiraz - black cherries, black plums, dark chocolate and a hint of white pepper, laced with liquorice, spiced meats and graphite.

From $40.00 per 750ml

    Description

    Tasting Notes: Black berries, dark chocolate and aniseed aromas, gently lifted by hints of cherry blossom, white pepper and allspice. Utterly coating black and red fruit tannin on the entry, which is continued and amplified through the palate by soft textures laced with liquorice and spiced meats. An opulent finish of graphite and spiced black plums.

    Winemaking Notes: Picked in the early hours of the morning, our Shiraz fruit was destemmed directly to the fermentors as whole berries, resulting in slower and more controlled extraction of tannin and greater retention of fruit based aromatics. A cool ferment on skins for 14 days was followed by a gentle pressing straight to barrel. The wine was matured for 10 months in a combination of French Oak barriques and puncheons, 30% of which were new, and underwent bâttonage every 5-6 weeks.

    Wine Details

    • Region Margaret River, Western Australia
    • Sub Region Margaret River, Western Australia
    • Vintage 2019
    • Type Red Wine
    • Variety Shiraz
    • Background

      Margaret River experienced moderate to high rainfall throughout Winter, followed by a moderate Spring and even Summer temperatures with minimal rainfall, leading to healthy flowering and fruit set and a perfect ripening season for Vintage 2016. Another challenging year in terms of bird pressure, owing to a lack of marri blossom in surrounding bushland; which was kept under control with well-timed bird netting. Quality was high overall, with whites and reds displaying super-fine structure, impressive elegance and minerality. Crop yields were low, but the fruit performed beautifully, making this a vintage to be valued.

    • Vineyard Notes

      Our old-vine Shiraz is planted north-south, thus benefitting from even sunlight and warmth on either side of the canopy throughout the growing season. Fruit is dry grown, with multiple passes throughout the season to arrange and manipulate shoots and leaves, thus achieving the best balance of light and shade for our stylistic aspirations. Each individual vine is fruit thinned to help it reach its ultimate height of quality and intensity.

After 10 months in oak, the wine was lightly fined prior to filtration and bottling.

    • Tasting Notes

      Deep crimson in colour, a bouquet of blossoms, red currants and plums with hints of vanilla pod and white pepper. A broad and coating entry laced with flavours of plums, allspice and black olives. Smooth layers of black and red tannin ease their way into a finish of baked orange, raspberries and anise.
