Tournon Shay's Flat Vineyard Shiraz
A deep garnet appearance complements a complex nose of black fruits and cherry with hints of tobacco. The palate is rich and opulent, dominated by black fruits and licorice with supple, delicate tannins.
Pair with grilled meat.
Grapes are harvested at maturity avoiding over maturation. Grapes are destemmed and fermented in concrete or stainless steel tanks. A long maceration (from 4 to 5 weeks) and a gentle work on the marc allow the extraction of fine and elegant tannins. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. A small proportion of the wine is aged in tanks to preserve the freshness of the flavors.
