Notes on the Hesketh Shiraz The Protagonist 750ML 2009

Tasting Notes - Colour: Deep ruby red with purple hues. - Aroma: Raspberry & cherry fruits, mocha, vanilla, cedar, dark chocolate and plums. - Palate: Generous and ripe, but not overpoweringly so. Cherry fruits, with hints of vanilla, chocolate and some licorice spice. Primary fruit and oak flavours are balanced neatly with natural acidity to provide restraint and elegance to the persistent finish. - Food Match: Red meats such as Venison. Steak. - Cellaring: Best up to 2021

Wine Maker Notes Fruit for The Protagonist is sourced from two low yielding mature vineyards (approx 30 years old) located in the Tanunda and Lyndoch sub regions of the Barossa Valley. Fruit is picked at optimum ripeness, with individual parcels matched to a selection of new and older American and French Oak where it was matured for 24 months prior to blending and bottling. The Protagonist was bottled with minimal filtration to maintain intensity of colour, structure and flavour

Technical Notes Total Acidity: 6.29 g/l 14.4% abv pH:3.59
