Wills Domain Estate Shiraz 2017

COLOUR
Medium purple.

NOSE
Lifted aromas of potpourri, cedar and briary fruit lead to a dense yet lively palate of plums, white pepper and spice.

PALATE
The wine finish is long with supple tannins and purple fruit notes throughout the palate.

WINEMAKING
Shiraz berries are processed un-crushed (whole berries) to a tank for fermentation on skin. Whole berries ensure slower and more controlled extraction of tannin, better perfume retention and greater aromatic complexity. Fermented on skin for 10-14 days at 22°C (cool) and pumped over twice a day, then pressed to barrel. French (Allier and Voges forests), 33 – 40% new. Aged in barrel on very light lees for 10 months before bottling. Battonage every 5-6 weeks.

FOOD PAIRING
Long cooked meats, char grilled quail and duck breast and pork.
