Our third vintage of Coombe Farm Shiraz, showing wonderful concentration and depth of flavours. The nose is rich and brooding - a testament to the warmer vintage conditions - with blue fruits, black cherries, sweet spice and oak. Classically cool climate on the on the palate, with notes of marzipan and white pepper, and a spicy finish.
The 2016 Shiraz is a blend of three clones sourced from Western Victoria, North Eastern Victoria and the Barossa Valley. Vines are planted on a north-facing hillside block of our estate. Fruit was hand harvested in small batches and each clone was fermented separately in small open fermenters. The wine was aged in a combination of Hungarian and French oak barrels, of which 30% were new.
