Wandering Lane Shiraz 2020
Deep garnet red.
Dense, dark fruits - plum & forest fruits, with lifted white pepper & anise spice.
True varietal characters, plum, blueberry and dark cherry. Integrated toasty oak compliments the fruit which results in a wine with soft tannin and long lingering finish.
The fruit was machine harvested and transported to the winery where it was destemmed and crushed into fermenters. Once inoculated, the ferments were pumped over and plunged twice a day, temperature was held around 25°C to prevent over extraction of tannins locked in the skins. The wine was then transferred to oak for malolactic fermentation allowing a soft integration of the grape and oak tannins. After the correct amount of maturation, the wine was blended, fined then bottled.
