2015 Montalto Estate Shiraz
A single vineyard wine sourced from our warmer Tuerong vineyard situated at the northern end of the Peninsula. The fruit is hand harvested and de-stemmed into 2T open fermenters, followed by a short cold maceration period of between 3 and 5 days before the onset of wild fermentation. There’s a post-ferment maceration followed by pressing. 26% of the blend underwent carbonic maceration for 2 weeks before being destemmed and then fermented on skins to dryness. The wine is transferred to French oak barriques (21% new) for malo-lactic fermentation followed by maturation for 11 months.
