2014 'CF Block' 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 Limited Release ‘CF Block’ Shiraz comes from the Claude Ferraris vineyard on Hermitage Road, in Pokolbin, Hunter Valley.
The vineyard soils consist largely of red brown sandy clay loams over weathered sandstone. These produce moderate canopy vigour and small to moderate crops of well balanced Shiraz fruit with good intensity of flavour.
TA: 6.7 g/L
8.3 Standard Drinks
This wine represents a classic medium bodied Hunter Valley style. Displaying intense fruit of black cherries and mulberry, the palate is complex and textural. The fine Tannin structure provided by subtle oak gives beautiful line and length to the finish. A wine that will benefit from further cellaring.
