A perennial benchmark in Coonawarra Shiraz, by a couple who have been crafting conspicuous regional editions for over thirty years. Opulent with enticing aromas, heady flavours, stylish oak and fine tannins.
Doug and Emma Bowen graduated from Roseworthy before settling down to establish a hands on winemaking venture which became one of the Coonawarra's salient estates. Shiraz vines are hand pruned and trellised to the hanging cane method, allowing the fruit to utilize the sunshine for the development of optimum ripeness and flavour. The grapes are harvested, crushed, inoculated and vinified on skins for several days. A third of the wine is barrel fermented in new wood each year. After separating from the solids lees and racking, the wine is monitored throughout malolactic fermentation, followed by a transfer into 225 litres American oak barriques where it rests for up to twenty months.
TASTING NOTES
Deep red in colour, purple hues. The nose exhibits rich cherry and spice notes. Seductive spicy Shiraz fruit richness on the palate gives way to a fine tannin structure. This well rounded wine shows great medium palate weight with the length strengthened by the use of American oak. A match with roast lamb, rich stews and mature cheddar.
