AOW Shiraz

  • AOW Shiraz


    For those of you that tried the 2016 Sellicks Hill Shiraz you'll know that it was a big boy, built with the structure to last likely a decade or more in the cellar. In 2017 David turned the volume down a little and created a wine that was a little more approachable when young but still retained all the things we loved about the 2016 release. 2017 saw 20% whole bunches, 30% pressed off as rosé juice with the remaining 50% destemmed. Pressed after 2 weeks on skins to old oak and then bottled just over 12 months later. Ripe juicy plums and berries with a delicious savoury edge reminiscent of cooler climate Shiraz. Great acidity and tannin structure [although more gentle than the 2016] will see this wine again with a great future...
