The parcel of grapes fermented to produce the Mallee Estate Reserve Shiraz are specifically selected by the winemaker. In the Markeas family vineyards, the winemaker looks for well balance vines, loose bunches, small berries, thick skins and ripe fruit flavour. Then the winemaking can begin. Slow fermentation with 10 days on skins, gentle pressing and French oak maturation for 12 months allow for the wine to become well balanced for quality and ageing.
This is a full-bodied wine. Deep red in colour with an intense hue, the nose has hints of white pepper, cloves and black current aroma. The palate is layered with coconut, plum and a toasty character. This is balanced with silky tannins which lead to a soft lingering finish.
