Paracombe Shiraz was made from grapes harvested when showing the best possible flavours and quality from the Drogemuller family vineyard and specialist local growers in Paracombe.
2013 was an exceptional vintage with even temperatures throughout the ripening season. The grapes were harvested from mid to late March with optimal yields and high quality.
The harvested grapes underwent a slow, cool fermentation followed by gentle pressing to gain a soft extraction of flavour and tannins. The wine was put to French Oak barriques to gracefully mature for around twenty months.
Paracombe Shiraz will delight with rich aromas, concentrated flavours, and cool climate elegance. This vintage is dark ruby colour accompanies an intense bouquet of cherries, plums, white pepper and spice.
The palate offers full generous flavours, layered with rich, spicy fruit, fine tannin structure and subtle oak. A complete wine to enjoy for many years with cellaring. That is, if you can keep your hands off it!
