Kirrihill Shiraz, Clare Valley
Kirrihill's 'Regional Series' showcases the classic Clare Valley varieties grown throughout the region.
The Shiraz entices with a perfume of lifted raspberry, blackberry, and caramel spice. A rich, medium bodied wine with vibrant black fruits, well-integrated oak, and a smooth, lingering finish. Pairs perfectly with great conversation and backyard BBQ’s.
TIME IN OAK
2020 was a dry season with below average rainfall. Hot and windy conditions during flowering caused several vineyards to be inconsistent with fruit set, while hot conditions
produced low crops with intense flavour. Diligent vineyard management prevailed, with excellent quality fruit having now produced wines with outstanding flavour.
Select Shiraz parcels were fermented in small batches across a two-week period. Cool ferments ensured that maximum vibrancy and freshness was maintained in the wines. The
wines were pressed into stainless steel tanks to complete secondary malolactic fermentation, followed by maturation in tanks for freshness, with a small percentage seeing some French and American oak.
