Winery & Vintage Info

The inspiration for Tar & Roses winemaking comes from Mediterranean grape varietals. It is not surprising that the breadth of their range stretches from Pinot Grigio to Nebbiolo. These wines have been traditionally matched in their country of origin with fine foods also sourced from their local area. The wines complement the local fare and have played a role in the cultural fabric of the community for centuries.

As with previous vintages, the grapes for the Tar & Roses Shiraz 2020 vintage come from two main vineyards, one of the deep red Cambrian soil, the other from tougher more gravelly ground. The first gives us rich, chocolatey and earthy flavours whilst the other has more highly fragrant notes with good acid and sweet fruit. The wine that results is our take on Heathcote shiraz.

The grapes for this wine came from a combination of vineyards. They were all kept separate during their fermentation and maturation lives. The machine harvested volume was crushed and de-stemmed into static fermenters and pumped over twice a day. After approximately ten days of fermentation, during which time the temperature and acid levels were monitored, they were individually pressed to tank using an air bag press. Finally the wine was racked off gross lees and put into barrel to mature in a combination of new French and older barriques. 20% new French oak component. Winery Notes
