Paul Osicka 'Majors Creek Vineyard' Shiraz 2017 (Heathcote)

Tasting Notes:
Paul Osicka Majors Creek Shiraz 2017 is vibrant with blue fruits and Dutch liquorice, then complexing characters of dark pepper, graphite, cedar and exotic spices.

The palate is initially quite juicy and flavoursome with silky tannins. Then it becomes more savoury textured as a core of dark fruits and chocolate underpinned by cedary oak and tannin carries through to the finish.

Best Wineries of the Regions & 5 Black Stars - Halliday Wine Companion 2019

"(...). What an amazing estate this is, steeped in family history, pioneer spirit, unique older vines. (...). Many of the wines off this site have a very distinct personality, quite original for the Heathcote region, and all with a sense of that ‘Aussie bush’ character (...). The visit to Osicka’s vineyard and winery has been a true highlight. These are extraordinary wines from an extraordinary place."

Paul Osicka Wines was started by former Czech Vigneron Paul Osicka in 1955 and is the longest established wine producer in the Heathcote Wine Region.

The wine is estate grown, made and bottled by Paul and Simon Osicka, the second and third generations involved in the business. A wet spring in 2016 was welcome after the previous hot and dry summer. The vines responded very well and meant a hectic growing season. While shoot thinning is conducted every year, we also needed to leaf pluck on the morning side of the vines in the lead up to the 2017 harvest. A second round of fruit thinning was also required to ensure quality outcomes. A mild summer and autumn finished the task with some Shiraz harvested on dates two months later than the early 2016 season.

The 10 Ha of Shiraz was hand picked in separate parcels dependent on soil type from the estate vineyard. Red veined quartz offering spice and tight tannins. Sandy Ironstone giving thickness and power. Deeper loams over gravel giving fruit fragrance and silky fine tannins. The fruit was hand picked and sorted post destemmer. These parcels were handled by gravity (no pumps) and fermented in small open pots as separate parcels, spending 3 to 4 weeks on skins. They were then matured in French oak (about 20% new) for about 14 months prior to blending and bottling in June 2018. Winery Notes
