Thistledown, Silken Beastie Shiraz

£19.99

Thistledown, Silken Beastie Shiraz

The fruit for the 2018 came from 3 different sites within the Barossa, all of which fall within the Ebenezer, Kalimna and Koonunga areas. Fruit was characteristically picked on the way up rather than the way down with a proportion hand picked and retained as whole bunches in the ferment. The remaining fruit was gently destemmed to leave whole berries before a native yeast ferment with twice daily hand plunges to aid gentle extraction. Each component part was aged separately for 6 months prior to blending and then a further 12 months in 300l French oak, of which 30% was new. The wine was then bottled unfined and unflitered.

Its not called ‘Silken’ and ‘Beastie’ for nothing…
Black berry fruit with a soft silky pepperness and classic black olive aromas. Complex and concentrated yet pleasingly light on its feet.
