Twisted Gum Shiraz 2012

I dig this. A lot!

Coming from a small vineyard which is all hands on, thick mulch is distributed under vines, minimal herbicide used and zero pesticides are applied. The vines are dry grown which is unique from most vineyards in the Granite Belt region. Only 1900 bottles were produced.

Winemaker Andy Williams take a bow. Juicy red berries and dark cherry fruit cut loose delivering sexy complexity and supple length that just won't go away. Wade through it some more and find a dash of granite minerality hovering in the background.

Available online and at the cellar door.

Excellent.
