Deakin Estate Shiraz has a fruity taste with notes of jam, a hint of pepper that goes well with the interwoven wood in the taste. Ripe red berries, plum, hints of vanilla and spice.
Fermented at moderate temperatures with pump overs programmed for a desired soft tannin effect. Pressing and malolactic fermentation were followed by clarification and maturation on small amounts of premium oak.
