Tar & Roses Shiraz 2017 (Heathcote)

Tasting Notes
The Tar & Roses Shiraz 2017 is rich ruby red in appearance, with aromas of ripe black cherries and liqourice with hints of spice and black pepper alongside floral notes and hints of sponge.

Dense sweet fruit on the palate. The wine has a plush mouthfeel with black berry characters, fine grainy tannins, well balanced with a clean finish.

This wine would pair nicely with grilled lamb loin chops off the BBQ, with a fresh garden salad dressed with oil and balsamic vinegar.

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.

High praise comes in far and wide for Tar & Roses Heathcote Shiraz. It’s typical of the region showing black cherry and fennel aromas alongside a palate that’s broad and savoury with hints of blood plum, liquorice and roasted beetroot. It’s juicy, well balanced and full of fine tannins.

As with previous vintages, the grapes come from two main vineyards, one off 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 separately during their fermentation and maturation lives. The machine harvested volume was crushed and destemmed into static fermenters and pumped over three times 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 finish malolactic fermentation and mature in a combination of new French (18%) and older barriques. Winery Notes
