Main & Cherry 2016 Shiraz
Cherry Gardens Vineyard, Adelaide Hills
Vines planted 1996
Altitude 350 – 375 metres
Clones – 1654 and R6WV28
Spur and cane pruned
Our single vineyard Shiraz is from our home block at Cherry Gardens in a warm pocket of the Adelaide Hills. The lean, rocky soils here naturally produce low vigour in the vines and results in low yields of concentrated flavours.
Handpicked on two separate occasions to factor in variations between the clones and the block. The result is an elegant and well rounded wine with flavours of chocolate, wild blackberry fruits and subtle mint characters. The acid structure of this vintage gives a brightness to the mouthfeel and will ensure longevity in the cellar to those with patience.
Fermentation: 20% whole bunches, with 10 days on skins before basket pressing
Maturation: 16 months in French oak
Main & Cherry 2016 Adelaide Hills Shiraz - 93 points James Halliday
4.5 stars Katie Spain, The Advertiser, July 2019 Review:
"Swipe right for fun. Dark choc mint and voluptuous blackberry flavours make this a memorable mouthful. It's an approachable shiraz - nothing too heavy here, folks. For the nerds, it contains 20 percent whole bunch, with 10 days on skins before basket pressing and matured for 16 months in French oak. A crowd pleaser and an approachable addition to the dinner table. You beauty."
