Pindarie 2018 Western Ridge Shiraz 750ml

Earn 45 Reward Points

Grape Variety: 100% Shiraz

Origin Country: Australia

Region of Production: Barossa Valley (Single Vineyard, Estate Grown).

Wine Making Notes: In 2018 we selected rows from two blocks that ripened similarly and were harvested on the same day.

Each grape batch was fermented, pressed and matured separately in predominantly French oak, of which 25% is new oak (we use 5% American oak each year for length and spice). After two rackings over time to naturally clarify the wines, we selected and blended those barrels that best reflected the season and the vineyard.

After 10 months asleep in oak, we bottle and let it rest again for 24 months before release. 2018 was an exceptional vintage. The annual Barossa Wine Show is the best place for the quality of our wines to be judged against their peers. Our 2018 Western Ridge Shiraz beat all other 2018 Shiraz wines, to be awarded the Trophy for best 2018 Shiraz.

So… we feel justified in telling you that this wine is fantastic!

2018 vintage has proven to be the best of the best comparing with the great vintages of 2016, 2012, 2010 and 2008.

Tasting Notes: Well balanced, deep purple red, powerfully fragrant with an abundance of fruits: blackberry, cherry, black olive, spices, and a hint of meaty complexity. A faint aroma of fine toasted French oak barrels. Gentle yet full-flavoured, it’s young! Beautiful strong tannins; despite its youth, and with a gentle long palate. Yes: it will cellar beautifully.

Food Pairing: Ideal with a wide range of red meats cuisine, especially dishes with beef or lamb but do not overcook the meats.
