Oakridge Over the Shoulder Shiraz, Yarra Valley

Oakridge Over the Shoulder Shiraz, Yarra Valley

Fruit for this wine was sourced almost entirely from the Whitsend Vineyard in Coldstream. All grapes were hand-picked and chilled overnight before gently de-stemming to open fermenters. Approximately 3% of the ferments were Viognier whole bunches, for co-fermentation. Ferments were gently pumped over twice daily over a two week period, with ferment temperatures peaking at 35°C, until pressing and settling in tank. The wines were then racked to a mixture of French oak hogsheads and larger puncheons to complete malolactic conversion. This is a soft generous wine. Plump with rich black fruit countered by the white pepper and spices.
