2021 Shiraz di Renzo
$32.00 inc. GST
Made with fruit sources from 2 vineyards in the Orange GI; Boreelane and Amaroo Rd. There was a combination of different extractions; 20% whole bunch, 100% whole bunch (2 months), whole berries punched down and whole berries with minimal punch downs. The ferments were eventually pressed off to a range of maturation vessels made up of a smidgen of new oak (5%), older barriques and a 750L foudre named Joline. The wines were all matured on full lees and remained un sulphured throughout the Winter when things started warming up and the volatility reached a point we weren’t comfortable being exceeded. In January the wines came out of barrel into the final blend and were filtered lightly before bottling on the March 10th.
Alcohol: 12.8 %

An elegant shiraz of a cool vintage- some may dare to call it Syrah but we can’t be bothered going to all that trouble. The colour is light and inviting. On the nose we’re seeing rhubarb, undergrowth red berries and grilled nuts. In the mouth it’s all about delicate red fruit and powdery tannins followed through by delicate and cleansing acid. A real easy goer- nice wine.
