Vasse Felix Shiraz

INTRO

Made primarily from the oldest Shiraz vines in Margaret River and is fermented in small batches and matured in French barriques. Margaret River Shiraz is a delicate and structured style with elegance and finesse.
Each small batch of the 2012 Shiraz was vinified and matured separately. Natural fermentation, maceration and aeration were combined in such a way as to ensure the gentlest extraction of
colour, tannins and the truest expression of fruit. Following 16 months maturation in new and old French oak barriques, each batch underwent a rigorous appraisal process to identify the best
barrels within the best batches. The resulting wine is an exceptional example of Margaret River Shiraz. Traces of natural sediments may sometimes be seen in this wine due to our
adoption of traditional winemaking practices. The wine will benefit from decanting or standing upright for an hour prior to service.
A fine yet complex perfume with biscotti and crunchy pie crust beneath bright cranberry and raspberry fruit aromas. Hints of licorice, chocolate, dark spice and berry liqueur emerge and build the enticing character of the wine.
