Jasper Hill Georgia'S Paddock Shiraz 2018
Nez : It has a bouquet of dark berries and cherries
Bouche : palate brimming with glossy, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit with hints of spice and eucalyptus over a background of ripe tannins.
Les conseils du Sommelier : Ageing period: from 5 to 10 years.
Cépage(s) : 100% Syrah
Sol : Our soils are derived from Cambrian period basaltic rock of 500/600 million years age. They are quite rare in the world because of their great age, particularly in Australia. Here in Heathcote they are unusually deep (up to 4 metres), rusty red coloured, well drained, gravelly loams on undulating hillsides, with good moisture retention capabilities.
Vinification : Organically grown grapes are picked by hand, completely de-stemmed and go through maceration for around 6 weeks, during which time there is minimal intervention in order to allow the grapes from each individual paddock to express their individual terroir.
Elevage : The wine is then transferred into small French oak barriques, 20% of which are new, (without any racking, fining or filtration) for around 14 months. Georgia’s Paddock shiraz is predominately aged in American oak.
Degré d’alcool : 15.5
