2013 'Coquun' Single Vineyard Shiraz
Hunter Valley (NSW)
Fermented on skins at 18 - 20 Degrees for 7 days. Matured in selected French oak for 12 months prior to bottling and blending.
VINEYARD / SOIL
Our Coquun (Hunter River) Shiraz is produced from the famous 'Tallawanta' Vineyard planted in 1920. These 90 year old vines produce tiny quantities of intensely flavoured fruit.
Tallawanta Vineyard, between Hunter Valley Gardens and Harrigan's Irish Pub, in Broke Road, Polkolbin forerly owned by the Elliott family is now leased to Pepper Tree Wines from the now owners, the Roche family.
Continously creating outstanding fruit each year, the vines are dry land grown, thus ensuring low yields and high quality fruit. The vineyard soil is quite typical of the Hunter Valley with a mixture of sandy loam and red volcanic clay.
TA: 6.7 g/L
8.6 Standard Drinks
Concentrated aromas of mulberry and blackberry, complexed by spice notes and well integrated savoury oak. A fruit driven Shiraz displaying berry fruits balanced by fine tannins and subtle oak complexity providing a classically elegant finish.
