Paul Osicka Shiraz 2018

The 10 Ha of Shiraz (all 1950"s plantings) was handpicked in separate parcels dependent on soil type. Sorted in the vineyard, destemmed, sorted post deRstemmer and then feed by gravity into small

open top fermenters to achieve lots of whole berries. Just under 4 weeks on skins before pressing

into French oak (20 % new) for 14 months maturation. Racked once out of oak and bottled in June

2018.

Spice, dark fruits and Dutch liquorice. Very complex and the cooler season highlights a more

evocative style. Concentrated, juicy and with a silky mid palate. The wine is opulent with waves of

flavour and tannin. Black pepper suggesting the cooler year as this intermingles with dark fruits and

some charry oak. The wine lingers with fineRgrained tannin and finishes salivating.

"I've always had a soft spot for Paul Osicka wines. A producer whose attention to detail flows from

the vineyard to the winery, not so much marketing. Respect. This has all the regional hallmarks - the

blue fruits, bay leaf and warm earth - but also its own unique DNA. A depth of flavour without being

too much. It"s glossy with smooth, supple tannins and finishes long" James Halliday
