2015 GLENWILLOW RESERVE BENDIGO SHIRAZ
RRP $60 / 2035
Fermented with 20% whole bunches, matured in French hogsheads (20% new). This ups the power of its sibling; fruit, oak and tannins rising in unison and proportion. It is worthy of extended cellaring, its balance not in doubt. 14.4% alc. This wine is the perfect balance of a good wine. It has rich, powerful flavours, yet is still smooth and elegant, with great line and length, and amazing structure. The key factor, I reckon, was the picking time in the vineyard – we nailed it!
