Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Medium bodied displaying a subtle combination of spicy pepper, juicy berry and tar like characters which are typical of Hunter Shiraz coupled with nuances of violet and beetroot. Velevity tannins intergrated with red and blue fruit, with a long lingering finish.
Vineyard Notes
Timbervines Vineyard
Winemaker Notes
Ripasso wine is inspired from the Northern Italian winemaking tradition of 'repassing' a previous year's wine from barrel over fresh pressed skins from another wine. The wine picks up richness and body, a degree or two of alcohol and additional tannins. We only do this in outstanding vintages. This wine was from the exceptional 2014 vintage which we repassed over the 2015 and then 2016 vintage shiraz pressings.
Food Pairing Notes
Wagyu brisket, mushroom, celeriac and glazed onion
