Description

Tussock Jumper Shiraz 2019


Tussock Jumper Shiraz has a fruity, lightly spicy flavour.
Deep purple colour. Fresh bouquet of delicate red fruit, eucalyptus and mint. Medium-bodied and quite dry on the palate with smooth tannins, a bright acidity and good persistence. Fresh cherry fruit flavours upfront with a spicy, peppery finish. Will appeal to all lovers of Shiraz/Syrah!

100% Shiraz. The grapes come from vineyards in south eastern Australia: Triangle Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney. The vineyards lie in a majestic landscape of rich red soils under clear blue skies with an abundance of golden sunshine.
Grape picking occurs under the cover of night to retain freshness. Gentle pressing off skins follows six days later, then malolactic fermentation. The wine ages for a long period in a combination of American and French oak.
