Kurtz Family Vineyards Schmick Shiraz



SKU: N/A Category:

Product Description

Vineyard: Fruit was sourced from a single block of mature Shiraz vines grown in the Eden Valley sub-region of Moculta, on the north-eastern fringe of the Barossa.

Winemaking: The wine was made with minimal interference from the winemaker. Small batches were fermented on skins for 10 days. Malo-lactic fermentation was encouraged as soon as primary fermentation was complete. Matured in a mixture of new and older French oak hogsheads for 27 months prior to bottling.

Technical Analysis:
Alcohol: 15.5%
pH: 3.52
Acidity: 6.3 g/L

Colour: Deep crimson with purple hues.

Nose: Distinctive spicy herbs and blackberries dominate on the nose, enhanced with regional Dutch liquorice and freshly ground coffee.

Palate: An elegant yet full-flavoured wine with cake-spice, liquorice and mocha accentuating the ripe blackberry and loganberry fruit. The palate is plush and silky with a refreshing acidity providing a fine backbone throughout, finishing with long, spicy fruit and smooth, structural tannins.

Cellaring Potential:  Although suitable for current consumption, further cellaring will be rewarded. Decanting prior to serving is recommended.

Food Match: ‘Schmick’ Shiraz is a great match with grilled, pan-fried or roasted meats, and full-flavoured dishes.
