Normans Old Vine McLaren Vale Langhorne Ck Shiraz 2009 $9.99 Each

AWARD WINNER AT THE DECANTER WORLD WINE AWARDS OUTPOINTS WINES UP TO $250 PER BOTTLE. SAVE $240 A DOZEN.

Sourced from two vineyards one in McLaren Vale the other in Langhorne Creek from vines aged up to 80 years of age. The wine was fermented in small stainless steel fermenters to retain concentrated fruit flavours. To complete the fermentation process and maturation the wine went into mostly old oak barrels with a small percentage of new oak for a period of 12 months. This enabled the use of the 100% French barrels to slowly infiltrate the highly concentrated fruit flavour creating a well balanced yet complex tannin structure. Drinking magnificently now, but will reward 6-8 years cellaring to develop more complexity.

Shiraz: McLaren Vale 76% & Langhorne Creek 24%
