Schubert Estate The Hatchling shiraz

Basket pressed.  Drink / cellar now and for a decade

Colour: Garnet, deep core with a brick red rim.
Aroma: Concentrated notes of black plum, blackberry conserve and Christmas cake, complimented with subtle spicy cedar oak tones and tobacco leaf aromas.
Palate: Fruit forward flavours of plums, blueberry, cocoa powder wash across the surfaces of the mouth. Dusty savoury oak derived tannins encompass the dense fruit core. Alcohol warmth extends the olfactory experience.
Now with over 12 months bottle age, this wine is ready to drink now or
further cellar for future enjoyment anytime over the next decade.

Fragrant spicy nose with fresh herbal notes. Well balanced palate -flavours of licorice and black pepper. Fresh acidity and grippy finish.

The Hatchling Shiraz has a bright bouquet of ripe plum, cracked pepper and dark chocolate being held together by a mouth coating tannin
line. On the palate it shows hints of mocha and dried fig tightly held together.

The Shiraz grapes are hand-picked, destemmed and fermented (EC1118 yeast) in 5 tonne open top fermenters.  Twice daily pump-overs to
achieve maximum extraction of colour, flavour and tannin.
At the completion of fermentation, the wine is basket pressed with free run and pressings wine combined.

Filled to neutral French oak 225L barriques for a maturation period of 18 months before careful barrel selection and blending before bottling.

The wine is neither fined, nor filtered
