Down The Rabbit Hole Shiraz (12 Bottles x $24

Sale price$288.00



Our shiraz fills your mouth with rich red berry flavours and peppery undertones which are augmented by the maturation in small french oak. The wine is juicy, soft and velvety, with a long smooth finish.

Vintage Notes

A wet winter and spring set the vines up for the growing season. Despite some early summer rain, disease pressure remained low. Flowering was late, leading to a late harvest, with a long and slow ripening season. Ideal conditions for concentrated flavour development and acid retention.

Winemaking Notes

The fruit was destemmed and crushed gently, then pumped over twice daily for 8 days. We kept the ferment cool to retain the bright primary fruit characters. Following ferment, the wine was pressed and transferred into French oak barrels (20% new) to mature for 18 months.

Deep red with purple hues

Bright and aromatic with dark red berries, nutmeg, white pepper, subtle oak and complex barrel ferment characters showing through.

Full flavoured, packed with red berries, a hint of plum and blackberry, complemented by dark chocolate, liquorice and black pepper. Structured and well balanced with a long, velvety finish.
