Vouge Barossa Shiraz
Deep red with purple hues on release. Creamy plum with blackberry and spice aromas. A medium to full bodied wine with a silky tannin backbone, a hint of spice and a grainy tannin finish.
his vintage had a cool, slow ripening period which has in turn produced elegant red wines.
The grapes are crushed and de-stemmed into fermenters. Yeast is added immediately once in fermenter and the ferments are pumped over twice daily to maximise colour, tannin and flavour extraction. Cooling is used to ensure ferment temperatures remain in the 22-25 degree celcius range which will allow the fruit to display maximum fruit expression. Pressing then occurs approximately seven days after crushing and the wine is then put into predominately American oak to mature.
12 months in American oak.
