TASTING NOTE

3 Bridges Shiraz is a rich, earthy Shiraz. It is deep red brick in colour and abundant in flavour. Aromas include cherry, mocha and smoky oak with subtle hints of licorice and eucalyptus. The rich, warm palate is packed with ripe berry, spicy fruit and tobacco characters. The flavour is deep and long with good structure and plenty of grippy tannins. A fine example of Australian Shiraz that will cellar comfortable for 7 to 10 years.

 

Shiraz is made with soft handling to preserve the delicate primary fruit and extract only soft tannins. Grapes are fully destemmed and gently crushed with some whole berries. Fermentation occurs in open concrete fermenters which are hand plunged and pumped over twice daily. Pressed in an airbag press when at 2 Baume and fermentation finished in all new French and American oak barriques and hogsheads. Racked three times and left to mature in the same barrels for a further 18 months.

 

FOOD ACCOMPANIMENTS

Grilled beef rolls stuffed with pine nuts and raisins, lamb shanks with roasted garden vegetables.
