The Colonial Estate Shiraz Blend Barossa Valley Emigré 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine is the product of diligent viticulture. Spur-pruning, canopy management, green harvesting, and handpicking all come together to produce ripe, pure bunches of grapes that are subjected to double-triage before being conveyed into new wooden vats. Oak barrels from French coopers complete the wine’s formation. Final soft pressing is undertaken in an imported basket press. The wine has a roundness and innate harmony, which belies its intensity, strength, and concentration.

To access that information please check out www.maltus.com. The 2008 vintage marks the beginning of what we hope will become a love affair between our French-inspired winemaking and viticultural approach and the beautiful landscape and terroir of the Napa Valley. Close cropping, double-sorting, lees in suspension, will be part of the norm. Read less

An Australian red blend that shows just how sophisticated and age worthy their reds can be.
