I wanted to make a smashable, acid-driven red wine in the style of Beaujolais, away from the old syrupy style of Shiraz.
About The Wine
This is the debut release of Shiraz from ex-retailer-turned-winemaker, Yuri Zinenko.
He's combined the best of two Shiraz worlds here - the silkiness from McLaren Vale Shiraz with the spice and lifted aromatics of Shiraz from the Pyrenees region.
This was fermented as whole berries for three weeks the sent to old oak barrels with some Chardonnay lees. The wine is highly perfumed, crisp and delicious.
A great first release from this new act on the scene.
