2020 FE Shiraz


Vintage: 2020 – a classical WA vintage with a warm and dry ripening period moderated by afternoon sea-breezes and cool nights.

Varietals: 100% Shiraz.

Appearance: Bright, cherry red with ink black tints.

Aroma: Perfumed nose of vibrant red and blue fruits – cherry, blueberry and violets, with hints of cocoa and spice – white pepper and aniseed.

Palate: Palate is medium bodied, with juicy plum, blueberry and cherry fruit characters to the fore. Hints of aniseed and roasted meats add spice and savoury complexity while a gentle framework of soft tannins and acid gives length, poise and freshness to the finish.

Oak Detail: 12 months maturation in seasoned French oak barriques with just a hint of new oak.

Cellaring: Whilst designed to be ready for immediate consumption, this wine will benefit from anywhere up to 4-6 years in the bottle.

Food Pairing: A perfect everyday wine for everyday meals – think barbequed beef, wood-fired pizza or pasta Bolognese.

Alcohol Volume: 14.5%
Acidity: pH 3.60; TA 5.9 g/L
Residual Sugar:1.0 g/L
