2016 Ironbank Shiraz
Cellar Door Exclusive
The 2016 Ironbank is predominantly Shiraz (88%), added Pinot Noir gives a silky mouth-feel. The Shiraz gives lifted spice and ripe berry aromas. The sweet fruit flavours make this an exceptionally well balanced, full bodied wine.
Hand-picked, then destemmed into open-top fermenters the fruit is cold soaked for about four days to extract colour and fine aromas. Once fermenting, each small ferment batch was plunged twice daily. After a sixteen day fermentation the free-run wine is then pumped to oak and the skins traditionally basket pressed.
