Pig In The House Shiraz 2011
Winery/Brand: Pig In The House
This 2011 Shiraz is a flavoursome wine with bright and fresh varietal characters of plum, berry fruits and spice which are well balanced by a touch of French oak . Enjoy the regional flavours of this single vineyard wine with roast meats and vegetables, pasta or pizza. This is a vibrant wine that will continue to develop in the bottle over the next few years.
Winemaking: The grapes were crushed and de-stemmed prior to being transferred to a small stainless open fermentor. The must was inoculated with M2 yeast and fermentation took place between 24 and 26 degrees Celsius. The cap was plunged by hand at least three times a day. The wine was then pressed off skins at three baume. A portion of the wine (15%) was transferred to two year old French oak for maturation.
