Possums Vineyard Reserve Shiraz
This Shiraz vineyard is planted on a North to South facing slope located in Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale. This elevated vineyard experiences hill and gully breezes as well as ocean westerly, from the Gulf of St Vincent.
The soils are weathered and leached, consisting of a shallow layer of grey sand overlaying red loam that grades into clay. These own rooted vines average over 30 years old and produce concentrated fruit flavours and aromas at low yields.
Deep crimson and violet hues are punctuated by hints of anise, nut- meg and cedar on the nose.
The palate shows layers of plum and raspberry supported by soft velvety tannins. The finish is elegant and textured with a hint of dark chocolate.
This Shiraz wine has been matured for 18 months in French oak Barrels and will mature gracefully over time.
