Description

 

Wills Domain Paladin Hill 2019 Shiraz

COLOUR
Deep brick red, subtle purple.

NOSE
Complex aromas of liquorice spice violets and dark fruits.

PALATE
The palate is savoury, generous rich round and soft, with Rhone like flavours of blueberry clove and pepper on the mid palate. A wine with abundant rich flavours and powerful persistent tannins which are soft and supple.

WINEMAKING
The fruit was harvested from our Wills Domain Block 5 Shiraz. Small berries and bunches a feature of the 2020 harvest were harvested by select harvester in the cool of the early morning and destemmed prior to being inoculated with a selected dried yeast strain. We managed to achieve many whole berries in the fermenter which resulted in some “whole berry” type flavours in the resultant wine.

FOOD PAIRING
Lamb cassoulet.
