2022 Hunter Valley Shiraz 375ml

2022 Hunter Valley Shiraz 375ml
Half Bottle

Hunter Valley, NSW

Lovely mid-depth colour with purple tints. Lifted red fruit and earthy notes on the nose. Ripe fruit and low oak impact on the palate, with the new oak providing a slight vanillin sweetness complimenting the berry fruit. The ripe fruit tannins are complimented by the natural fruit acidity to give a very long finish to the wine. Typical medium bodied Hunter Valley Shiraz from a very good year.

Wine Profile
Vinification
Part vinomatic and part open top 2-4 tonne fermenters. The latter plunged two times per day. After 5 days, pressed off, with malolactic fermentation conducted in oak barrel. The wine matured in 100% French oak, made up of 25% puncheons and overall 25% new oak. The Shiraz grapes are sourced solely from the Graveyard Vineyard, being clonal vines planted through the 90s and massale selection from the 1968 plantings, with the oldest at 10 years of age.
Winemaker Comments
A season with many similarities to 2021 but overall of higher quality. La Nina once again made for a cool, wet season, albeit tempered by consistent breeze, which kept the canopy dry and disease at bay. Pokolbin had reached its annual rainfall by the end of November, with it being the wettest November on record. We ended up receiving 956mm for 2021. it was one of the latest harvests in the Hunter in many years. Picking was conducted under cool, cloudy skies.
Food Pairing
Veal, duck and cheese.
Drink
Drinking well now but will improve with further bottle age.
