Jean Pauls Vineyard Shiraz 2008
Winery/Brand: Jean Pauls Vineyard
Deep in coulur this full bodied shiraz is big & juicy with spicy cherry & plum fruit and a hint of pepper. On the palate the fruit flavours are supported by great oak and fine silky tannins. Great structure, texture and length are the hallmarks of this quality wine. Will cellar but why wait.
I beleive that there is no actual practice to growing grapes, more to the fact, it is a philosophy in viticulture, passed down from generation to generation whilst all the time being developed and enhanced by the new minds of the current generation. How can anyone say that this methode or practice works in all situations? Look back and you may see the future!
We prefer to allow our wines to settle in the barrels, racking at least twice during the aging process, minimal sulphure is used throughout our wine making process. Once bottled, and prior to being released, the wine spends further time resting in the cellar.
