'The Cronberry' Shiraz, Adelaide Hills, Murdoch Hill
A typical cool climate Shiraz with fragrant perfumed red fruits, pepper and spice notes. The palate shows succulent red fruits of raspberries and cherries, a medium smooth bodied wine that is supported well with quality French Oak. The tannins are fine and savoury with lingering flavours of red fruits and spice. A gentle but persistent wine.
Country and Region:
Grape Varieties :
Small batch winemaking methods are employed to produce wines that express the vineyard site. After hand picking the grapes are destemmed into open fermenters with the inclusion of 25% whole bunches. Gentle hand plunging several times daily enables Murdoch Hill to extract full colour, flavour and tannins. After a period of extended maceration on skins the wine is then pressed and matured in a combination of new (25% New) and older French oak barriques for 10 months before bottling.
