The Reserve Shiraz is a wine that has been aged in oak for 3 years, is typical of a classical old elegant shiraz style, finely textured, with soft approachable tannins and opulent rich warm flavors on the palate. A rich Padthaway Shiraz of character and finesse. This wine would make a great accompaniment to braised duck, grilled pork loin or any barbecued beef.
The palate is full bodied and elegant with dark plum and blackberry flavors complemented by touches of eucalpytus and mint. Supple, silky tannins form the basis of this finely structured and balanced Shiraz.
The fruit was fermented to dryness on the skins without any barrel treatment before pressing into new French and American oak barriques for aging.
