Normans Chandlers Hill Shiraz 2018
Normans Chandlers Hill - Shiraz 2018
Dark core with a purple rim in colour. Fruit driven style with notes of freshly cut plum, cherries and liquorice.
Beautifully soft wine showing plum, cherry and some sweeter blueberry notes. A rich flavoursome wine with beautifully soft tannins and the finest touch of oak.
The fruit was picked in the cool of night then fermented on skins in static potters and rotary fermenters for a period of seven days to retain as much of the luscious natural fruit flavour as possible. Warm temperatures at the early stages of fermentation along with three days of post ferment maceration helped develop soft fleshy fruit and tannins while helping build structure. Following the pressing process, clarification and final blending the fruit was matured with select parcels having contact with 2nd and 3rd use oak.
Great to drink now, but will mature and develop complexity for the next 3 years.Varietals Shiraz
