2014 FORTIFIED SHIRAZ
The 2014 Crabtree Fortified Shiraz is made entirely from Crabtree Watervale Estate fruit. Bunches handpicked and carefully selected to ensure the best possible fruit condition.
Open fermented and fortified on skins using lovely old brandy spirit helping to give the Shiraz a well integrated character.
Basket pressed using traditional methods and stored in older French oak for 12 months. Lifted berry fruit flavours of licorice and raspberry, this fortified Shiraz shows perfumed aromatics and a sweet rich finish.
Serve with a hard cheese and fig and walnut bread – delicious.
With careful cellaring this wine should mature gracefully for 10+ years.
