Wine of The Month July 2019

2015 Oparina Padthaway Cab/Shiraz

Winemaking
Parcels of fruit were selected from our top producing Shiraz and Cabernet blocks and carefully handpicked before crushing into open fermenters. The use of 100% natural ferments has enhanced the flavours to create a unique combination of these two varieties. Fruit was basket pressed and matured in new French Oak for 18 months before bottling. It consists of 70% Cabernet, 30% Shiraz.

Tasting Notes
A full bodied yet fresh and vibrant wine, with round mouth-feel and firm tight finish.
Showing mulberry, dark chocolate aromas, with a touch of dried sage, this wine is perfect right now and will only improve with cellaring. (Sue Bell, Bellwether Wines)
