2017 Chockstone Shiraz

2017 Chockstone Shiraz

Known for its complex layers of flavours, nicely balanced acidity, and fine tannins. Picking the grapes at optimum maturity, just as we start to taste pepper spice is the key to obtaining our refined style. What follows in the cellar is long un-hurried fermentation that promotes the careful development of the wine’s restrained personality. Aging in carefully selected older American and French barrels is the final step in creating our Chockstone Shiraz.

Blackberries, cassis, dark chocolate, black pepper, hints of violets, bacon fat, and liquorice; a warm, velvety structure and long, plush finish.

A sophisticated, pretty thing now, but if you have the patience (and the extra wine), watch it evolve over the next decade or two.

95pts- Deep crimson-purple; the brooding black fruits, licorice, spice and graphite of the bouquet speak truly of the intense, yet elegant, medium to full-bodied palate. The tannins are fine, the oak a servant, the finish long and impeccably balanced.

96 Points - Vivid, deep crimson-purple - spectacular. Black cherry, blackberry and blackcurrant don't intend to give red, blue or purple fruits permission to speak. Oak and tannins are allowed to suggest support roles, but that's as far as it gets. Yet it's not the winemaker who has shut the door - it's the fruit and the site climate that have become the guardians of the River of Styx.
