VINIFICATION

All grapes are hand selected and chilled overnight before being partially destemmed andAll grapes are hand selected and chilled overnight before being partially destemmed andplaced as whole berries in open-top fermenters. The berry mash is cold soaked for 48hrs, beforefermenting spontaneously. Fermentation takes place at a cool 22°C. All fermentation is done bywild yeasts. During fermentation, the wine is mixed by hand and not by pump. This methodfacilitates greater control and expression of the wine. Once fermentation is complete the skinsare pressed in a traditional basket press and the wine is transferred to 500L second and third fillFrench oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation occurs in the barrel and helps to soften andenhance the natural wine flavours. The wine will spend more than a year in barrel to improvedmaturity and expose more flavours.

The ripe plum and mulberry aromas areuplifted with cherry blossom and violets, while infused with subtle cinnamon and aromatic whitepepper. The palate is gentle and the tannins fresh but rounded. The aromatics continue into thepalate with added blueberry, a hint of roasted black olives and soft spoken sweet spice. Aversatile, vibrant medium-bodied wine, the Baldrick Shiraz will enhance many a dish andoccasion. We recommend it with slow cooked lamb, freshly seared steak and mashed potatowith caramelised onion gravy. You could even have it with turnip…?!
