Woolshed Shiraz 2017

Producer: Wingara Wine Group
Fermented in a dozen different batches and then each subjected to slightly different maturation conditions. The various components contribute to the complexity of the final blend. American oak chips were added during fermentation so as to aid in integration of fruit and oak. After fermentation, there was some maturation in American and French oak prior to blending to achieve vanillin and toasty oak flavours that compliment rather than dominate the varietal fruit flavours.
