2018 Metode Shiraz Ripasso
Grapes were harvested in the cool of the evening to enhance flavour and colour profile then crushed and fermented for 2 days. Then dry grapes are added to engender secondary ferment and increase flavour complexity and intensity. Following skin contact of 15 days the free run was separated from the bag pressings. The outstanding level of quality grapes was the key ingredient to give more structure, body and flavours to this superb wine – it is intensely aromatic and rich and shows similar flavours to the more expensive Amarone. Dark chocolate, espresso beans and, dark ripe cherries abound.
