Normans Bin C163 Shiraz 2021
Normans Bin C163 - Shiraz 2021
Rich crimson red with hints of plum purple. Lifted aromatics with spicy nose with earthy tones. The fruit flavours are blackcurrants and stewed plums.
Classic Limestone Shiraz with ripe fruit characters of dark plum and cherry, with a hint of cassis spice and oak. The palate is generous, vibrant and savoury, with a smooth and velvety mouthfeel with some dried earth character followed by a soft tannin structure.
Sourced from a premium vineyard located in the ancient limestone soils of the Limestone coast region of South Australia. The fruit was picked over a four-week period, which ensures blending options for more complex finished wine. The individual parcels were fermented in stainless steel open top fermenters, macerated on skins for seven days before being pressed then aged with a mixture of French and American oak. The wines were allowed to spontaneously undergo malolactic fermentation and were kept in individual batches until final blending to ensure only the finest wine of the vintage produced our bin series Shiraz.
A young and fresh wine that can be enjoyed now or cellar 1-3 years.
