Lengs & Cooter Reserve Shiraz

Lengs & Cooter Reserve


McLaren Vale


Notes from the Producer

All fruit, the bulk of which is sourced from the sandy slopes of Blewitt Springs in the McLaren Vale Region, was hand picked and fermented in traditional open fermenters and the cap plunged regularly for maximum extraction. On completion of fermentation the skins were pressed using a basket press. The resultant wine was then aged for 20 months in American Oak barriques. A blend of new oak from several different coopers provides interest and complexity. The resultant wine is deep red with a touch of purple youthfulness on the rim. A powerful bouquet of black and red berry fruits, dark chocolate and spicy, smoky oak are featured. The palate is a complex combination of fruit and oak well balanced with acid and fine grain tannin providing a clean finish. 14.5% alc/vol. A well balanced wine that can be drunk now in it’s youth or cellared for many years . Given good cellaring this will drink well for the next 2 to 8 years.
