The grapes were picked in the last week of September. During fermentation the grape cap was pumped-over several times a day to increase the depth of colour and levels of extraction of the wine. After the wine was pressed out, and the free run wine was separated and used to make this wine. The wine was aged in second and third use French-oak barrels for twenty months.
This wine is focused and concentrated with a lovely floral nose and freshness on the palate.
Shiraz Elkosh is a great wine and an ideal accompaniment to a hearty meat meal.
