Bell Tower Shiraz 2018

Bouquet

Displaying spicy, slightly dusty closed aromatics at first, opening to spicy mulberry fruit aromas.

Palate

A rich and smooth Shiraz with lovely fruit and spice flavours. Sweet, round palate with loose tannins balanced with dark mulberry and fresh plum fruits flavor and style.

Winemaking

Grapes are picked on both colour and flavour development, then crushed and fermented for 7-10 days at approximately 20 degrees. Small open top fermenters are used with hand pumping over and returns to ensure optimum extraction of tannins and colour. The ferment is then softly pressed using an airbag press, so we do not extract the bitter tannin, producing a fruit driven style of wine. Once pressed the wine is allowed to go through natural malolactic fermentation. Further complexity is added by maturation in French and American oak for 9-12 months.
