The Cirillo Shiraz is made with grapes sourced from high-altitude vines from Steingarten on the border of the Barossa and Eden Valley ranges.
Fermentation is conducted in open-top vats with natural yeasts. It is then basket pressed and matured in seasoned French and American oak for 12 months.
The colour is dark, ink-like in appearance. It displays earthy spice-driven aromas, with hints of berry fruits. Soft and delicate on the palate, typical of Shiraz from this region. It carries mid-palate weight, with a lengthy finish that lingers in the moth for some time. This wine can be enjoyed now or over the next decade or two.
