2016 CARILLION THE FELDSPARS ORANGE SHIRAZ
RRP $40 / 2026
It’s more about personality than depth, but what a personality it is. Game, milk coffee, black pepper and tobacco notes add ample interest to the core of black cherry. Spice bomb. Fine fingers of tannin. Impressive in its own way. CM 14% alc. This was such a great vintage from our Orange vineyard. This particular parcel of fruit displayed great balance and intensity as must, so we decided to do extended maceration post-fermentation to achieve greater depth and for complexity of the regional characters. Every year, you cross your fingers for grapes like this because they don’t come around very often!
