2018 Charlotte Dalton Love Me Love You
This Shiraz comes from the Adelaide Hills.
Kind weather during the ripening period allowed me to let the fruit hang while waiting for optimal ripeness. The Shiraz was harvested toward the end of April. The wine was fermented with indigenous yeast. 35% whole bunch, pumped over thrice daily and pressed off after 13 days on skins and maturated in French oak barrels, of which 25% were new. After 9 months of oak maturation the wine is silky and vibrant with notes of Brambles, Blueberries, and Plums. Bottled without fining or filtration.
