Our 2019 Inara Shiraz demonstrates a bit more power and richness than you would normally associate with Shiraz grown in the cooler Yarra Valley. Sourced from a premium Gruyere vineyard, the grapes were picked fully ripe. A slow fermentation was carried out at moderate temperatures with gentle, daily pump-overs to extract fine tannins and colour. The wine was pressed off at the end of alcoholic fermentation and allowed to briefly age in oak barrels. Our aim is to showcase the youthful, berry fruit drive of a Yarra Valley Shiraz.
Tasting note: Rich and concentrated, the 2019 Inara Shiraz has aromas and flavours of black pepper with spicy stewed mulberry and poached dark plums. The oak ageing has added hints of vanilla, clove and cinnamon. Fine tannins support the juicy dark berry fruit.
The 2019 Inara Shiraz can be enjoyed on its own or share it with friends over a big plate of smoked barbeque brisket or hearty braises.
