LS Merchants Margies Shiraz
Sourced from a block in the heart of Wilyabrup with gravelly soils. The ‘Margies’ Shiraz embodies the Mediterranean climate, showing fruit density, power and elegance at the same time.
Machine picked in the early hours of the morning and tipped directly into 1 tonne open fermenters. It is allowed to start ferment indigenously and then seeded with an organic yeast from Germany that produces it’s own colour extraction enzymes to enhance colour stability. Fermented for 25 days on skins before basket pressing to 30% new and 70% used French oak. Bottled Unfined.
Black forest cake with dark cherries and a slight char. Elegant yet powerful.
