2014 'Tallavera' Limited Release Single Vineyard Shiraz
Hunter Valley (NSW)
Picked at optimal flavour ripeness before being destemmed into a static fermenter. Fermented for around 9 days before being pressed off and racked to barrel. Matured in selected French puncheons for 14 months prior to bottling.
VINEYARD / SOIL
Our Single Vineyard Shiraz comes from its namesake vineyard in the Mount View area of the lower Hunter Valley. The Mount View area contains 3 small subvalleys with highly favourable soils influenced by the large proportion of limestones in the underlying rocks. Terra Rossa clays over crumbly limestone and free draining red and brown loams cover hill slopes and are planted to red varieties.

A complex mix of spice, earth and ripe mulberry fruit integrated well with savoury oak. The palate is medium bodied and fruit driven displaying sweet berry fruit balanced by fine tannins providing great texture and a classically elegant finish.
