A rarity in the United States, our cool climate Shiraz pays homage to winemaker Russell Hearn's native county. This vibrant wine has a rich, dark hue with aromas of red fruit, cranberry and hints of spice box bursting from the glass. It's silky smooth tannins and hint of oak make this a beautiful wine to sip on it's own while also allowing the bold flavors to stand up to a heavier meal.
Bursting with red fruit and cranberry along with hints of spice box, the silky smooth tannins of the 2012 Shiraz were enhanced by the oak aging, defining it with hints of vanilla.
Fermented in open top tanks, the Shiraz juice spent 10-12 days in contact with the grape skins before being pressed, allowing for the bold flavor and rich color. The wine was then transferred to barrel where is aged for 6 months in American oak.
