Vinden Wines Basket Press Shiraz 2021

Vinden Wines Basket Press Shiraz is a soft, supple and stylish red wine. A vibrant modern Hunter Shiraz with an agelessness completed by its fine oak tannins. The palate offers layers of red and blue fruit flavours (blackberry, plum and raspberry) with hints of vanilla spice and earthy vibes.

100% Shiraz. The fruit comes from Vinden Wines' Somerset vineyard and Tawarri Vineyard in the Upper Hunter. Red volcanic clay soils over a limestone hillside in Pokolbin.

Made in traditional methods with cold soaking, wild fermentation in open concrete fermenters, hand plunging and basket pressing. The wine ages in neutral French oak (20% new) for 16 months.

Young Angus Vinden is the owner/winemaker of this much-loved Hunter Valley winery. Having taken the reins from his father just a few years ago, Gus is reimagining his family's wine label with a string of exciting, modern wines coming out of his cellar. 

Ageing potential: Drink now or anytime over the next 10 years.
