Bebeah Shiraz 2014

A reborn label for Meerea Park which has a pretty decent history between the mid 1800's to early 1900's. Fruit for this comes from vines planted in 1973. Only 300 six packs were produced and this is only available to wine club members and not general sale.

Hand picked, the fruit was crushed and fermented in open vats plunged daily. The wine saw 16 months of French oak puncheons, 20% of which were new.

Give this some time in a decanter. Roast beef jus, cherries and red fruits with peppery spice, earth and dried savoury herbs. Dusty and drying tannins to finish which hang on. Initially there was a warmth which detracted from what the fruit had to offer. It was a better wine on the second day of tasting after the acid settled.

Good+
