Old Plains Raw Power Shiraz 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Shiraz is big in alcohol, so it will crush more delicate dishes. So keep it away from most white fish dishes, and instead pair it with something that is suitable for its heavy body like thick stews. Speaking of alcohol, remember that is high in alcohol is a big NO with spicy hot foods. You are just putting out that fire in your mouth with gasoline. The heavy tannins in Shiraz love the bitter nature of charred food, so this is a great wine to pair with grilled steaks, peppercorn crusted tuna, and grilled vegetables like zucchini and eggplant. In fact, the peppery nature of Shiraz makes it a great companion with anything barbecued so as long as you don’t douse your food in hot sauce.

We are forever on the lookout for old vine material in the Adelaide Plains, so it was with great delight that Domenic stumbled across a 50 year old planting along the banks of the Gawler River. Truly a great example of old school viticulture, planted and nurtured by the Manno family, we're delighted to welcome it into the Old Plains family. There is also a good whack of shiraz here aswell. Small berries and loose bunches, so vintage twenty ten looks the goods. Not all good news though, two of our previous old vine vineyards have gone the way of the developer, soon to be villa rash (drinkster term for housing), these two small vineyards were at Munno Para West. Hardly iconic territory, but we loved them none the less. Sad to see them go, seems the local council views these blocks like dominos, once one goes the rest will follow. Allegedly an adjacent block was subdivide forcing the neighbouring vineyard to be revalued as villa block, the council rate increase was supposedly so huge, no amount of shiraz was going to cover the increase.
