The Shiraz fruit is picked in late March or early April depending on the vintage conditions and is handled in small batches in the winery at Sanguine Estate. Following light crushing and destemming the wine is naturally fermented with natural yeasts from the vineyard in small open fermenters. After approximately a week, batches of the wine are free run into new French barriques for barrel fermentation. The remainder is kept on skins for around 10 days to begin fermentation. When fermentation begins the wine is moved by gravity, to avoid pump shock, into aged French oak barriques. The Shiraz spends 20 – 22 months maturing in barrels.

In exceptional years after considered barrel tasting a decision is made to blend some of the wine to appear under our Reserve label. She-oak look for barrels with outstanding fruit flavour, fine tannins and good balance. A very limited number number of cases are produced. These wines are made for cellaring and sharing on special occassions.
This Reserve Shiraz was created after considered tasting from an equal blend of old vine and young vine fruit barrel fermented and matured in a 40% – 60% blend of new and aged French oak. The intense flavours of blackberry, cassis and cedar are balanced by the ripe tannins which carry the wine through to a very long and satisfying finish.This wine will age well in your cellar for at least the next decade.
