Graham Beck Robertson Barrel Fermented Shiraz 2002

100% Shiraz – The Shiraz grapes were picked at phenolic ripeness and cool soaked for 52 hours. Fermentation started on the skins. Traditional punch-down of the cap, after which the wine was pressed at 12 degrees B into barrel using a traditional basket press. The last 6% alcohol was developed in barrel where the wine was left on fermentation lees for malolactic fermentation. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was kept in contact with lees by batonage every 3 weeks. Barrel matured for 15 months in 100% New French oak. Tasting note: Intense, vibrant plum-like colour. Good intensity of spice and white pepper. Explosive palate with rich concentrated wood aromatics with plums, spice and violets on palate. Long and attractive finish.
