Serafino McLaren Vale Shiraz 2015
"Deep crimson-purple; this medium to full-bodied estate-grown wine has an outstanding mix of varietal and regional expression on both bouquet and palate; blackberry and satsuma plum play tag with each other, fine tannins and cedary oak providing the boundary lines for the tag-team. A classy wine with the option of early or late drinking."

SOLD OUT - Serafino Shiraz 2016 vintage is now available here.
The parcels of grapes are spread over a number of five tonne open fermenters. This is where we inoculate the grapes with carefully selected yeast strains to deliver ideal fermentation. The fermentation process of converting sugars to alcohol takes around ten days.
During this period each fermenter is carefully pumped over two to three times a day plus in the early stages we us a technique called delestage, where the juice is racked of the skins and then returned again to help with colour extraction, tannin enhancement and building the depth of flavour. At the end of primary fermentation the wine was pressed off skins and allowed to complete malolactic fermentation. The wine is then racked to a combination of new and older French and American oak hogsheads (300L), for a further 12 months. Winery Notes
