The Sledge Shiraz 2014

$40.00

A complex and engaging bouquet of cherry stone, blueberry and salted plum is accompanied by hints of cinnamon, tobacco and white pepper.

On the palate dark cherry, raspberry and blackberry characters are supported by a rich, yet textural structure of fine silky tannins.

Dark chocolate, espresso and spice flavours contribute to an impressive lingering finish.

Description

The Sledge Shiraz 2014

Background:

Heydon Estate wines are the product of our aged single vineyard estate, located in the prestigious Wilyabrup sub-region in the heart of Margaret River. The fruit for this wine is 96% Shiraz and 4% Viognier from our old blocks of Shiraz and Viognier. 2014 was a terrific vintage for reds with warm days and delightfully cool nights. Such is the quality and balance of our old blocks; full complex flavour development occurs whilst retaining the fruit intensity, classical long acidity and elegance that our wines are renowned for.

VINIFICATION:

Fruit was fermented in an open fermenter with some extended skin contact and gentle pumping over. Maturation for 18 months in French and American oak barrels, 30% new and 70% second use.

WINE ANALYSIS:
Alc/Vol:  14.0 %
Acidity:  7.5 g/l
pH:  3.2
