2012 Single Vineyard Shiraz Release
On the first and I imagine, cool weekend of July we will release the 2012 Single Vineyard Shiraz. Perfect timing for you to discover this heart warming red. As time goes by at Wedgetail we are working at making wines that reflect elegance, sophistication and a sense of true satisfaction; and this is what the 2012 SV Shiraz represents
The wine has 13% alcohol, the nose has plum and cherries with notes of vanilla , you can suspect vibrancy in the wine at this stage. The first mouthful takes you by surprise with its’ angelic lightness and a very long finish, not your typical Aussie Shiraz.

Our Latest News Ben Thomas Reviews the Single Vineyard Shiraz 2011 The Weekly Review 4 ½ / 5 Edgy, cool-climate Shiraz may not be to everyone’s taste, but here’s a good example. Only 150 cases of this wine, which was matured in 50 per cent new oak, were made. Perfumedand funky, cherry, redcurrant, stalky, sappy, meaty aromas are a delight. A silky smooth texture – it’s satin-like – bright acid and fine tannins support sweet and sour flavours of cherry, beetroot, cranberry, loam and spice. For the record, this is a style I love. Food match Chateaubriand

Magic occurs in bottles like it does around people. In this case naturally forming bubbles gather in a bottle of chardonnay forming a bunch of grapes, the molecular expression was stronger than the physical composition.
