User Reviews for Philip Shaw Shiraz Blend Orange No. 89

Winemaker's Notes:

Philip Shaw purchased the land for his Koomooloo vineyard in June 1988. In close proximity to the region’s highest peak, Mt Canobolas, Koomooloo vineyard rises to an altitude of 900M with red loam soils over limestone. Koomooloo is a unique hand kept vineyard with a routine of hand pruning, shoot thinning, leaf plucking, crop thinning, and hand picking happening in multiples if needed. Sourced from blocks 1, 3, 5 for the Shiraz, with viognier from the steep running block 4. Shiraz needs very careful shoot thinning because the variety can be vigorous and shoot numbers are important. Leaf plucking after Christmas is vital to allow even dappled sunlight and greater access for regular bunch thinning. “Bright, bordering on bracing, with juicy plum and spice aromas and flavours, not a big wine but immensely satisfying for its generous fruit, hinting at apricot as the finish lingers against superfine tannins. 90 points.” Wine Spectator,
