2014 Trust Shiraz
Varietal(s): 100% Shiraz
Appellation: Central Victoria
Vintage: A late frost characterised this vintage devastating vineyards in mid October. Fortunately the Crystal Hill vineyard was spared. A hot dry summer followed which led to the vines requiring supplementary irrigation. Having survived the frost and heat the yields were severely affected late in the season by the impact of birds and other typically Australian wildlife. The grapes that were eventually harvested did show great depth of flavour and concentration.
Colour: Deep burgundy.
Nose: The wine exhibits a fragrance of deep red roses, beetroot confit and blackcurrant jubes.
Palate: Very sweet across the mid palate, fresh sliced fennel and raspberry fruit combined with smooth chalky tannin.
