Watson Family Shiraz
The Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard is located in the southerly Wallcliffe region, which produces very elegant aromatic wines with gravelly tannins.
The Merlot is sourced from vineyards in the central Wilyabrup Valley region, known for producing plush wines with ripe tannins.
After harvesting, this wine was destemmed and crushed before being ‘cold soaked’ on skins for up to five days prior to fermentation. During fermentation the must was pumped over 4 times a day to extract colour and tannin. Following fermentation this wine was matured in French oak barrels for 12 months.
The nose of this wine shows an aromatic display of red and dark berry fruits. Ripe, plump, but medium bodied – this wine bursts with a combination of red berry fruits, white spice and toasty oak notes.
Generously constructed, rich and fine – this wine will be best enjoyed over the next 5 years.
