Description

Handpicked Regional Selection Shiraz

Handpicked Regional Selection Shiraz is rich and full-bodied with supple tannins. Loads of ripe black plum and dark forest fruit flavours balanced with nuances of toasty oak, chocolate and a hint of pepper. A wine with good drive and linearity.

100% Shiraz. After hand-harvesting from Handpicked's vineyard in the Barossa Valley, the fruit goes through destemming. Fermentation occurs in static overhead fermenters with regular pumping over. The wine ages for 12 months with a portion in a mix of old and new French oak barrels, and the remaining in quality French oak barrel staves. Fining with egg whites before bottling.


Ageing potential: Up to 5 years.
