Saint Petri Shiraz Carignan

The wine is a blend of two grape varieties from three vineyards in the Barossa Valley. Both the Shiraz and Carignan are from the Calabria Family’s ‘William’ Vineyard in Nuriootpa; soils are sand over clay at approx 280m elevation. These vineyards have moderately low GDD (1650-1800). The Carignan fruit is sourced from two vineyard blocks, one old and one young. The older block is circa 1914 planting and these vines are tagged and hand picked vine by vine. The Shiraz selected for this wine are over fifty years of age and display a dense core of fruit.

Dark purple with deep red core. Black currant aromas with hints of savoury spicy oak, liquorice, dark cherry, blood plums and lavender. A dense dark fruit core, the wine dances across the palate with dark chocolate flavours and savoury oak with ripe fine grained tannins, serious yet finely balance
Crafted under the guiding hand of chief winemaker, Emma Norbiato, the fruit is hand picked and sorted to ensure perfect fruit reaches the fermenter. The Shiraz parcel was fermented on skins for eight days in our 60 year old bespoke concrete vats before being gently pressed, and later completing malolactic fermentation in barrel. Carignan was one of the last varieties to ripen in the 2016 vintage season, and once the small parcel of fruit was harvested, it was carefully fermented separately in a small open top vessel. Matured individually in selected high quality French oak barrels for 12 months (predominately new oak), allowing the wines to soften and develop gracefully. After 12 months of maturation, the winemaking team tasted and selected individual barrels to ensure the wines are at their best prior to blending.
Calabria Saint Petri Shiraz Carignan is enjoyable now but will reward with medium term cellaring. Enjoy with Confit Duck with seasonal vegetables.
