Pizzini Shiraz 2017

A cool climate shiraz with aromas of blood plums, summer berries, spice and a subtle earthiness. The palate has lovely weight with earthy, red berry flavours, soft tannins and fresh, lush acidity.

Whole bunches of shiraz were hand harvested and placed in open top fermenters to enhance floral characters. The remaining grapes were pumped on top and were cooled to below 10 degrees C. We maintained a low temperature for 5 days allowing natural fermentation to begin before moving the tanks into the sun and adding yeast to continue fermentation. The tanks were hand plunged to encourage soft extraction of flavour and chalky silky tannins. The grapes were lightly pressed and the juice placed in barrels for 12 months before bottling.
