Shiraz 2010 Fortified Vintage Port (Gold Medal). Sun rippened dry-grown organic Shiraz was hand picked at a high sugar level from our local Swan Valley vineyard on the 6th March 2010. After crushing, the ferment was started with natural yeasts and continued at 30C until the ferment proceeded through 11 Baume'. Then the must was drained, basket pressed and returned to an open fermenter. Once the sugar was a desirable level the wine was fortified with certified organic neutral brandy spirit prior to underground cellaring and maturation.
A light red colour and a palate of rich mulberry, cherry and toffee flavours. Sometimes described as
Vintage Port - this wine has a sweet yet complex finish and a great balance.
Delightful with cheese or chocolate or on its own; a delightful fortified dessert wine 18.5% Alc 750 mL.
