2014 Limited Release Hayley's Shiraz

2014 Hayley's Shiraz

Limited Release
Aromas of meat-spice, cherries, red plums, white pepper and allspice to start, then guided rather precisely by wild red fruits and textures of tea leaves and chalky cherry skin on the entry. The finish is focused and bright, brought together and honed by gravelly tannin, laced with red fruits and hints of bay leaf and citrus blossom. A treasure to savour.

Winemakers comments Machine harvested. Shiraz berries are processed un-crushed (whole berries) to a tank for fermentation on skin. Whole berries ensure slower and more controlled extraction of tannin, better perfume retention and greater aromatic complexity. Fermented on skin for 10-14 days at 22 degC (cool) and pumped over twice a day, then pressed to barrel. Secondary malolactic 100%, occurs on barrel.
Maturation Aged in barrel on very light lees for 10-14 months before bottling. Battonage every 5-6 weeks. French (Allier and Voges forests), 33 - 40% new.

2014 Hayley's Shiraz

Reviews

95/100, James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2017, Bright, clear colour; cherry and spice aromas on the bouquet lead into a fresh, lively medium-bodied palate, red fruits to the fore, the juicy flavours given context by fine, yet savoury, tannins. All up, perfect balance and length. Drink to 2029
, Nick Butler, The Vindependent, This has an obvious fruit core to it - quality, ripe fruit. Northern Rhone spice and weight with new world brightness and acidity. It will live a very long time, and not change quickly. Terrific drink. Need more ambassadors for this style
