DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Opaque with dark purple highlights. Saturated rich blood plum and blackberry fruit, with hints of dark chocolate, licorice and oak derived vanilla bean.

Wine Making

After fermentation for five days using closed fermenters, the wine was aged in new American and French oak barriques for a period of 2 years.

Cellaring

Our 2007 The Brothers Shiraz has undergone extended maturation in both barrel and bottle for four years prior to release. This time has allowed fruit, oak and tannin to soften and integrate, to deliver a truly memorable Rutherglen Shiraz. Whilst drinking well now this wine will continue to age well up to 2022. Try alongside a tender rib eye steak with green peppercorn sauce.

The Grapes: Shiraz from our Rutherglen vineyard.
Date Tasted: July 2019
Alcohol: 15%
T.A (g/l): 6.1g/l

Palate:

A powerful wine with layers of dark berry fruits up front. Rich blood plum, black cherry, cocoa and sweet ground spice characters add complexity, with grainy fruit tannins providing texture and structure. Oak plays a supporting role, and despite the wines relative youth, is already well integrated.
