Ass Kisser Shiraz
Notes from the Producer
These grapes were selected from premium vineyards in South Australia. Only when optimum maturity and flavour profiles had been achieved, was this fruit harvested.
This carefully selected fruit was gently crushed into a series of small open fermenters, where daily rack and returns took place, with careful monitoring of the wines evolvement. Gentle basket pressing took place between 7 to 10 days after crushing.
12 months of maturation in a mixture of new and used French and American hogsheads, stored in temperature controlled cellars resulted in this flavoursome well made wine.
I picked up the 2009 vintage of this bargain basement wine, and I have to say it was even better than the 2007.
Price: ~$8 – $11
