The Yard Acacia Vineyard Shiraz 2015, Frankland River

Tasting notes

Beautifully ruby red wine with a combination of spice, black fruits and oaky earthiness make this a very complex and interesting Shiraz. Blueberry, black cherry and earthy notes carry across to the palate. Still young and ripe, the tannins are soft with good persistence and length, will mature well.

Producer note

Named 'Winery of the Year' in James Halliday's 2011 Wine Companion, Larry Cherubino wants his wines to be distinctive and to speak clearly of their variety and vineyard site. He believes in spending time in the vineyard, in paying attention to canopy and water management, and most importantly, picking at the right time with minimal interference in the winery. From delicate whites to big reds his wines have class and finesse.

Vinification

Fruit was hand picked and sorted. Fermentation was carried out in small lot fermenters. Moderate extraction was aimed for to ensure that the vineyard fruit characters were fully expressed. Fruit was maceration for 4 months. The wine was then aged in new and 1 year old oak for 6 months. Bottling was carried out early to preserve fruit and give the wine at least ten months in bottle prior to release.
