Background
‘Alexander Munro’ Shiraz is our flagship wine and made from the best parcel of shiraz fruit we receive each year.
Vineyard Notes
Situated in Pokolbin, the ‘Ivanhoe’ vineyard is the Shiraz source for this wine and has been consistently our best Shiraz fruit source since 2001. The vines have an average age of 40 years, with some much older and are dry-land grown.
Winemaking
Hand picked fruit was crushed into open vats and plunged twice daily to ensure maximum extraction. The wine was then pressed out straight into French oak of which 40 % was new. After 20 months of maturation the wine was lightly egg white fined and then bottled with minimal filtration.
Tasting Notes
Deep crimson colour in the glass, plenty of ripe dark fruits and hints of earth, spice and licorice on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied; lush and rich with blackberry and creamy oak. This wine has an elegant long finish and is already showing great balance.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
This wine has all the characteristics that are required for further long term cellaring.
Food Matches
Red meat dishes and aged cheeses.
