Richard Hamilton Little Road Shiraz 2015 – McLaren Vale
WINEMAKERS NOTES The focus in producing this wine is to have vibrancy of fruit on the nose and palate with a tight structure and attractive mouth filling roundness. The fruit was all grown on our Estate between the McLaren Vale and Willunga townships. Following fermentation on skins, the components were pressed before dryness and allowed some oak fermentation. On the completion of malo-lactic fermentation, the wine was ‘re-worked’ and returned to oak for further maturation. It received a light egg white fining prior to bottling.
COLOUR Full dense red with vibrant scarlet highlights.
BOUQUET Attractive spice and black pepper with savoury fruit notes enhanced through the elegant use of oak that has integrated to complement, rather than dominate, the nose.
PALATE The palate shows definitive Shiraz flavours with the richness to be expected of a McLaren Vale wine. The tannins are tight and long with a round texture to give excellent persistence.
