Archer Shiraz 2014

This is a wine that marries the inherently fleshy and rich character of Heathcote Shiraz with fragrance and perfume.  It’s bursting with aromas of blackberry, blueberry and dark cherry as well as chocolate, musky perfume and attractive oak spice.  The palate has lithe and juicy texture, really full and round, the core flavours of red cherry, blueberry and dark plum fruits are wrapped in fine long and smooth tannins.  Finishes with tangy plum stone freshness.

The 2013 season was ideal in Heathcote with lower yields across all clones of Shiraz and grapes harvested in perfect condition. After partial destemming, each parcel was fermented with a high proportion of whole bunches (approx 75%) utilising ambient yeasts.  The resulting components were then aged in French oak puncheons (30% new) for 10 months.  The components were then racked, blended together and returned to barrel for a further 6 months.  This wine wine has received no additions other than a small amount of sulphur at bottling.  13.5% alcohol.
