2015 Domaine Tournon Lady’s Lane Vineyard Shiraz
Single vineyard, dry grown and organically farmed
Alcohol: 13.5% abv
Region: Pyrenees Victoria
Grown on the deep red Cambrian soils of Heathcote, our Lady’s Lane vineyard is naturally low yielding with intensely flavoured fruit.
The 2014 vintage has produced some excellent wines, albeit with lower yields due to early Spring frost. The long, dry summer allowed the fruit to ripen perfectly and picking was carried out prior to the early autumn rains.
100% destemmed and fermented in concrete tanks using wild yeasts. 4-6 week maceration with gentle pumping over to develop a fine knit tannin structure.
Matured in French oak barrels with a low percentage of new oak (10-15%) for 14 months.
Deep ruby colour with a complex nose of redcurrant, leather, red crushed berries, a hint of toffee, incense and curry.
This is a powerful and generous wine expressing itself with delicacy thanks to the fine knit tannic structure. Intense flavours of ripe fruits and spices combined with a fine acidity – a balance between richness and strength reflecting perfectly the terroir of Heathcote.
