2016 Shining Rock Shiraz

2016 Shining Rock Shiraz

Hand-picked, co-fermented with 2% viognier, no whole bunches this vintage, matured in French puncheons (25% new) for 15 months. An interesting follow-on to the '15, the latter giving rise to many very good wines. The '16 takes its time in asserting its character and quality, which it does so handsomely on the back-palate and finish. Here spicy, savoury notes are allied with terrific tannins, fine, yet persistent.

DESCRIPTION
  • Shining Rock is a family owned and operated Vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Established in 2000 by Petaluma, the Arney family purchased the Shining Rock Vineyard in 2012 after scouring the Adelaide Hills for years looking for the perfect vineyard and a property to build a home for their family. Along with Shiraz, Shining Rock Vineyard is planted to Viognier, Sangiovese and Gruner Veltliner.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Shining Rock Vineyard was a site selected and planted to reflect the terrior of the North Rhone of France which is the home to Shiraz (Syrah). The Shiraz clones planted in the vineyard have been sourced from some of the best cool climate vineyards in Australia. This Shiraz has been co-fermented with Viognier to enhance colour and bouquet of the wine. 20% whole bunches were included in the ferment, then matured in 30% new French oak puncheons to enhance the fine tannins and provide structure whilst maintaining fruit flavour.

    TASTING NOTES

    Spicy and fragrant bouquet showing dark berries, pepper and spice. The smooth palate flows with luscious dark fruits and liquorice, supported by fine tannins and elegant freshness.
