2014 Rayner Vineyard Shiraz

2014 Rayner Vineyard Shiraz

McLaren Vale, SA

Typical dense McLaren Vale colour and purple hues. Exotic blackberry pastille, plum fruit nose with vanillin oak in the background. Sweet fruit entry on the palate, Turkish Delight flavours and full bodied mouth feel. Alcohol plays a part of this style of Shiraz, certainly not too much. Enjoy in its youth or allow it to develop into a lovely chocolate/earth/tobacco mature red.

Wine Profile
Vinification
Machine harvested, crushed and chilled to tanker in McLaren Vale and then in the Hunter Valley within 24 hours, open 3-4 tonne fermenters and hand plunged twice per day. Pressed to oak just before the end of fermentation. In a departure from the previous Rayner Vineyard Shiraz, this has been matured in 100% French oak and the largest parcel a new 2,500 litre Francois Frere cask.
Winemaker Comments
A welcome return of one of our most iconic Single Vineyard wines. Previously made between 1993 and 2007, the Shiraz grapes for this wine are not from the 1950 plantings but from a block right next door and planted in the early 1990s. A feature of the vineyard, which is just outside the town of McLaren Vale in South Australia, is the deep sand over clay soils. A warm to hot vintage was experienced in McLaren Vale with two heat waves, one in January and one in February. The vintage was aided by February rain and cooler temperatures ensured slower ripening.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with beef fillet and osso bucco.
Drink
Drinking well now in its youth but will develop into a lovely mature dry red over medium to long term cellaring.
