Shiraz 2020

Predominantly sourced from Woody Nook Wines Estate's original 1982 plantings of dry-grown, old vine Shiraz, this wine exhibits spice and a tinge of white pepper on the nose, leading on to a mid-palate of black plums and ripe mulberry enhanced by vanillin, coconut and a slight char from the heavy toasted American oak.

Winemaker's Notes:

Woody Nook Wines Shiraz 2020 was made from low yielding, hand-picked grapes from the two vineyards on the Woody Nook estate;  the non-irrigated, original 1982 Gallagher Block (71%) and the younger, 2007 planted, Joliffe Block (29%).   A total of 5.65 tonnes of Shiraz grapes were hand-picked on the 5th March, 2020 and machine harvested on the 18th March at 13.9° baumé.   Destemmed and crushed to two separate open fermenters, inoculated with yeast and fermented on skins for seven days with twice daily pump overs and hand plunging.   The wine was then pressed to tank to complete primary and malolactic fermentation before racking to 18 barriques (Nadalie & Saury), second-use American & French oak for twenty months maturation.   The wine was then cross flow filtered and bottled (unfined) in December 2020.    Only 394 cases were produced.
All wine is sold by the case. (multiples of 12 mix or match bottles)
