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.
