16 Stops Shiraz

16 Stops Shiraz

€16.95
 

This deep coloured Shiraz is youthful and vibrant, with a lovely dark fruit and spiced plum character on the nose. The oak supports rather than masks the fruit, which is bright and lively yet plush and fleshy on the palate. The tannins are ripe and silky, giving the wine a texture that is unusual at this price.

Description

The grapes are selected from multiple vineyard sites in South Australia, with much of the blend coming from vineyards around the Willunga district. The vines are mainly planted with a north-south row orientation, primarily with clone 1654. This is the clone widely regarded as producing the best Shiraz in the McLaren Vale region. The vines are mainly hand pruned.

The 16 Stops wines are made at the Willunga 100 winery under the watchful eye of consultant winemaker Tim James, with much of the fruit sourced from the same vineyards. The wines blend the fruit from the McLaren Vale with that of the Adelaide Hills to combine the best of both areas, with riper flavours from the McLaren Vale, and fresh, mineral notes from the Adelaide Hills.

The name 16 Stops comes from the number of stops on the railway line from Adelaide to the Vineyard.
