Morambro Creek Shiraz 2012
Deep inky black & purple in colour. The nose is perfumed with lifted mint, blueberry, vanilla and spice with a touch of liquorice and white pepper in the background. Expansive palate, smooth lush ripe blue-black fruits, nicely balanced oak, plenty of concentration with a long finish.
Winemaking at Morambro Creek is very traditional and labour intensive. Oak maturation takes place using 35% new barrels both French and American. This blend was put together using select barrels from our family estate that best demonstrate the intensity of our fruit balanced by integrated oak.
2012 was a very good season with predominantly mild, dry days. Yields were generally low and this did result in some excellent parcels of fruit being harvested. Vine-balance was carefully monitored, resulting in fruit that demonstrates the vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive for in our wines.
