2015 Ralph Fowler Shiraz
The 2015 vintage has been a 10 plus harvest. The red wine produced have an extra dimension rarely seen. Our flagship wine the Shiraz is exceptional. The fruit has been handpicked, whole berry fermented and basket pressed.
The wine was matured in French oak barriques for 10 months.
The style reflects our cool climate and is savoury, complex and structured. The wine is intensely coloured, strongly perfurmed with berry, spice and pepper characters. The flavours are long and have good linger with layers and complex fruitiness finishing with firm fine and dry tannins.
Our gentle approach and hand making make the wines attractive drinking now for their fruitiness, richness and attractive fine dry tannins. Try this wine after 3 or 4 years and benefit from the added flavours and complexity and softening of the tannins. The wine will cellar well for up to 11 years.
