Wills Domain Eightfold 2019 Shiraz
Deep brick red with a purple hue.
Perfumed showing mulberry dried spices chocolate and liquorice.
Is lively and fresh with a sweet fruit mid palate and balanced with some dry fine tannins. A seamless wine which shows restraint, but with great concentration and flavour.
This wine was sourced from 75% Wills Domain Block 6 Shiraz and 25% Bantry Bay Shiraz, a vineyard to the southeast of Wills Domain. This wine was picked in the cool of the morning, gently destemmed and cold soaked for 3 days prior to inoculation with a cultured yeast strain. During on skin fermentation the wine was pumped over twice per day and fermented at around 24 degrees. Post fermentation the wine was left on skins for 5 days before being pressed and racked to barrels. This is a very fine and soft wine made from a cool Margaret River vintage.
Roast lamb shoulder / leg, BBQ sirloin.
