Tournon Lady's Lane Vineyard Shiraz
This Shiraz shows a deep garnet appearance with aromas of redcurrant, leather, red crushed berries with hints of toffee. The wine is powerful and generous, expressing itself with delicacy. Intense flavors of ripe fruits and spices combine to a fine acidity on the palate and a long, expressive finish.
A perfect accompaniment to lamb and beef. We recommend opening the bottle one hour before serving.
The crop is manually harvested at maturity, avoiding over-maturation. The grapes are 100% destemmed. Fermentation takes place in concrete tanks. Maturation times are long (from 4 to 6 weeks) and a gentle extraction is performed by pumping-over. It aims at obtaining fine and delicate tannins. Ageing 100% in French oak barrels with low proportion of new oak (20%) for 14 months.

The Lady’s Lane vineyard is located just north of Heathcote on 500-million-year-old Cambrian soil. This soil, a red brown gravelly loam over basalt bedrock supports low vigor vine growth and requires no irrigation. The much sought after four-hectare Shiraz vineyard which sits on well-draining gentle slopes was planted in 2002.
