‘Hermann’s Vineyard’ Shiraz
A selection of Rolf Binder Estate Shiraz vineyards with average age of 30 years were used to source fruit for this particular wine.
The wine is aged in a mix of older French (50%) and American (50%) oak barrels for 18 months before final blending and bottling.
Ripe black forest fruits and spice are balanced by rounded tannins and seamless structure. The medium-bodied palate reflects the nose with flavours of cedar, stewed fruit and cigar box.
A pleasant lingering finish with some vanillan oak notes with hints of mocha and tobacco. The wine has a fresh, vibrant palate with good depth of flavour and nice layering of fruit.
This is a great value, very drinkable wine that leaves you wanting more.
Allow some time to open up when drinking younger. Drink to 2028.
