Silence of the Lamb Heathcote Shiraz 2019 750ml

Anything but silent! The palate is awash with delish black cherry, and licorice, also showing some blackcurrant, white pepper and spice (and all things nice). Complete the picture with some elegant tannins. Happily vegan.

Our winemaking philosophy is one where the full expression of fruit is focussed on, and then calls on fine oak to support its style. Grapes are de-stemmed without crushing, and then allowed to macerate on skins for a few days before innoculation, and then fermented on skins for approximately 9 days before pressing. The wine is matured for 12 months prior to bottling, with French oak of which 30% is new.
