Wills Domain Cuvée d’ Élevage Shiraz 2017
Raspberries, glazed cherries, cinnamon and cracked peppercorns to start, followed by hints of white flowers, rhubarb and graphite.
Fresh, with red fruit tannin and lush acidity driving home the medley of rosewater, aniseed and poached plums to the finish.
Hand-picked and gently destemmed as whole berries to fermenters. The fruit is cool fermented at 22°C to retain fruit freshness and allow for gentle extraction of tannin and flavour. Twice daily pump-overs the wine was gently separated from the skin and transferred to a combination of French Oak barriques to complete fermentation.
Roast pork, roast duck, char grilled quail.
