2014 Shiraz, Area Blend

2014 Shiraz, Area Blend

An excellent McLaren Vale vintage and the Hunter Shiraz shines at 25%. Everything about this wine is medium bodied. Some purple edges evident and quite floral/rose petal aromas. The palate has lovely weight and fruit spice flavours. The blend works perfectly. Low oak impact and ripe tannins for a great finish.

Winemaker Comments
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. The Hunter Valley saw lower crop and low foliage meaning an early pick. Vintage 2014 was not too dissimilar to 2000 except 2014 had perfectly ripe tannins at much lower sugar. An effortless vintage for the winemakers, one of the best in decades. The frost event of October 18 was widespread that vineyards from central Victoria right through to Cowra and Orange in the NSW Hilltops were affected. The Indigo Vineyard in Beechworth VIC lost quite a lot of fruit and then to really test the vineyard crew, temperatures in late December hit 41C, and 44C in mid-January. Some rain, nearly 50mm in late January did cool things down.
