Dark and lush with a black fruit and light spice. Long finish and pleasant nose. Hard to beat for the price. Typical Shotfire, though one of the better years.

Well balanced, interesting. Tar and red fruit flavors. Recommend for wide range of meats and roasted poultry. A good value.

The grapes are crushed and destemmed into open fermenters. Yeast is added immediately once in fermenter and the ferments are pumped over twice daily to maximize color, tannin and flavor extraction. Cooling is used to ensure ferments remain in the 22-25 degrees Celsius range which will allow the fruit to display maximum fruit expression. Pressing then occurs approximately seven days after crushing and the wine is then put into a mix of French and American oak to mature.12 to 18 months in 40% new American and French hogsheads, with the balance going into 2nd and 3rd fill barrels.Deep red in color. The lifted nose has plums and sweet spice - cardoman and cinnamon, with choc mint oak characters. The palate is full bodied but refined with some expressive berry fruit, plums, liquorice and complex spicy oak. There is a great depth of fruit which will ensure the longevity of the wine and also gives it wonderful mouthfilling sensation. The tannins are velvety and combined with the rich fruit and spicy oak gives the wine great length of flavor.

Kräftige dunkelrote Farbe. In der Nase reife Himbeeren, Kirschen und Tabakblätter. Im Gaumen vollmundig und explosiv mit Aromen von getrockneten Aprikosen, karamellisierten Feigen und Marzipan kombiniert mit duftender Vanille und dezenter Kokosnuss.

The 2007 Shotfire Shiraz was aged for 12-18 months in a mix of new and used French and American oak, 40% new. A saturated purple black in color, this glass-coating effort has a nose of wood smoke, bacon, mineral, and blueberry that leaps from the glass. Rich and intense on the palate, it has layers of flavor, excellent balance, and a pure finish. It way over-delivers for its humble price. Drink it over the next six years.

The mid-weight palate is rich and mouth filling; finishing with fine-grained tannins and great length of the savoury fruit and oak.

Kräftige dunkelrote Farbe. In der Nase feines Zedernholz, Kirschen und Röstaromen. Im Gaumen vollmundig und fruchtig mit Noten von dunklen Beeren und Gewürzen, gut eingebundene Tanninen, exzellenter, langer Abgang.
