Halliday - Supplement - - Shiraz & Blends Red Hot & Rated -

RRP $78 / 2039

Black la­bel, The Wale in minia­ture dusky print. Fer­mented with 89% whole bunches, 12 days on skins, 10 months in used oak. Power and in­ten­sity are undi­min­ished, but there is a dis­tinct spike of bright­ness through the fruit be­fore the pow­er­ful savoury fruits seek (but don’t suc­ceed) to close the bright­ness. 13.7% alc. The po­ten­tial for The Wale was ev­i­dent in the vine­yard, it then ex­pressed it­self dur­ing fer­men­ta­tion, and is now show­ing its el­e­gance in bot­tle. 2016 is the in­au­gu­ral re­lease of The Wale and we are ex­cited to see it recog­nised.
