Luddite Auction Reverse Shiraz Mourvedre 2011

Selected from the best Shiraz barrels of the 2011 vintage. The Mourvedre was fermented in small batches and aged in new oak for a year. The 8% Mourvedre was then blended with the Shiraz and returned to second fill barrels for a further year to allow the blend to marry. Tasting Notes: Great fruit concentration dominated by dark plum and spice with the Mourvedre sending a perfumed violet undertone. Balanced wood and fruit tannins provide a silky finish.

Winemaker: Niels Verburg
