Terra Rossa Premium McLarenvale Shiraz

Brand: Terra Rossa




The Wine
Deep red in colour with aromas of dark fruit and chocolate.  The palate is full and concentrated showing rich sweet dark fruit and spice flavours.  Silky smooth tannins provide a long finish to this soft, complex and balanced wine.

The Grapes
McLaren Vale’s warm maritime climate is ideal for producing high quality Shiraz grapes.  The proximity to the ocean moderates summer day time temperatures allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly.  Together with the free draining soils assisting in vine balance; the vineyard can consistently produce full flavoured Shiraz grapes.   

The Winemaking
2010 was considered a great vintage for McLaren Vale.  Good winter and early spring rains then warm and dry conditions
during the ripening period.  The fruit was in great condition and perfectly ripe when picked at 14.0° Baume.  Once fermented to dryness the must was pressed then racked to barrel for maturation.  After maturation the wine was carefully blended and bottled. 

With Food
Grilled red meats are a perfect match.
