2016 Southern Fleurieu Shiraz (DOZEN)
Look south from our winery, beyond the luminescent hills to the lush grazing lands of the Southern Fleurieu. The dry arid landscape of McLaren Vale is suddenly replaced with a patchwork of green. This is where our journey took us with this Capisce; a study of cool climate Shiraz.
Our 2016 Southern Fleurieu Shiraz is not like your typical McLaren Vale Shiraz, rather a homage to France’s Northern Rhone - the home of French Syrah. A cooler climate with longer winter influence in the Southern Fleurieu results in later ripening. This wine offers ample fruit that is accentuated with pepper and exotic spice notes. The Southern Fleurieu may lie just on our doorstep, but it remains a world away.
