Shiraz

Quin Wines Barossa Valley Shiraz 2017



Fruit for this wine was sourced from three separate blocks in our seven-hectare vineyard on the banks of Greenock Creek. Planted in the mid 90’s on their own roots this 1654 clone Shiraz thrives on the red clay loam over limestone that makes this one of the great sub-regions of the Barossa. East/west row orientation provides perfect sun protection through the heat of the growing season and the south facing aspect creates bright fruit and an air of elegance.

Nose – Blueberry, blackberry and red currant.

Palate – Soft round palate with layers of rich fruit.

10% was hand harvested and direct tipped into an open top fermenter for whole bunch fermentation. The remainder was harvested in the cool of the morning and delivered to the winery where it was destemmed into an open top fermenter. Time on skins ranged from ten –thirty days before the wines were basket pressed, settled overnight and racked to seasoned French oak. The wine was blended in September then returned to oak for maturation, a total of twenty months. Bottled in December 2018
