2017 Four Winds Vineyard Shiraz

2017 Four Winds Vineyard Shiraz

Canberra District, NSW

Very bright youthful colour and medium density, not unlike a Hunter Shiraz. Pepper and red spice notes reflect the Canberra region, accompanied by a slight charry oak aroma. Lovely even flow to the palate, medium weight with some vanillin oak sweetness. Red fruit pastille characters and fine tannins on the finish. Enjoy over the medium to long term.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Brokenwood’s fourth release of Murrumbateman Shiraz from the Four Winds Vineyard. This small, cool climate viticultural region is half way between Canberra and Yass and the home of some very fine wineries such as Clonakilla and Helm. As well as spicy Shiraz, the area has been making a name for itself with racy, slatey Rieslings. Average rainfall for 2015, then a dry start to summer. A very stormy January with nearly all the 200mm falling in this month. February back to hot and dry with temperature above average but cool nights. Vines health and overall quality was high.
Vinification
Hand-picked, the fruit was transported to the Brokenwood winery for vinification. Bunches were de-stemmed, with 20% remaining as a whole bunch component for fermentation in open vats. A three day cold soak was followed by 10 further days on skins for fermentation. Gentle plunging twice daily. The pressed wine went straight into a one year old 500L French oak for maturation, for fourteen months.
Food Pairing
Wild game and any red meat dishes.
