Our latest Shiraz special is our 2012 Cornella Ridge Shiraz. A medium-bodied Shiraz from a solid vintage with cherries on the palate complemented with pepper and vanilla from maturation in french oak.
Great value at $120/dozen.
The Shiraz Republic is located in the heart of the Heathcote region on red Cambrian volcanic soils. The ancient soils produce extraordinary Shiraz. The easterly facing slopes are gentle, well drained and frost-free.
Traditional hands-on wine making methods were used at every stage of the process. Low yields, hand picked, and hand plunged fruit in open fermenting vats allow the intense colours and flavour of the fruit to speak for itself. Minimal intervention in the natural processes allows good fruit to become fine wine. French oak gives length and subtlety.
