2018 Tambo Malakoff Shiraz – Red Selection Wine Club
complex |savoury | black cherry | wild berry
This Shiraz displays medium bodied complex, savoury black cherry fruits with fleshy texture and a long rich lush finish. Lifted acidity and savoury tannins combine to produce a classic new world Shiraz with varietal purity and persistence.
A marriage of vineyard site, soil, climate and suitable varieties has helped to continue the fine reputation of Malakoff vineyard as one of the state’s most celebrated grower sites.
The winemaking at Tambo employed techniques to protect the essential pure Pyrenees Shiraz character
Following a warm primary ferment, then 2 weeks extended maceration on skins, the wine was transferred to oak barrels for secondary fermentation and 24 months maturation in new to four year old French barriques ensuring complexity, smoothness and integration of all flavour components before bottling by gravity.
