2015 Nest Egg Shiraz

Regular price AU $99.00

Top shiraz parcels were processed gently from start to finish. Fruit is partially destemmed, with up to 50% whole berries then transferred to small, open top fermenters.

Parcels spend around 7-12 days on skins, with twice-daily analysis from the winemakers to ensure optimum colour and flavour. The premium oak barrels chosen for maturation were selected specifically to maximise the flavour profile of the shiraz.  The wine spent 22 months ageing in barrels that are 65% new oak.

The resulting limited release wine is deep coloured, dark red with a bright ruby hue. Powerful yet distinctly cool climate, on the nose flavours of brambly black fruit are apparent, supported by cracked pepper, nuanced floral violets and black olive. Structured in its youth, with rich and brooding shiraz fruit, the wine will develop and evolve beautifully over time.

A perfect partner for red meat, enjoy with steak or slow-cooked ribs.

The Nest Egg Shiraz has a 12 bottle purchase limit. If you're a Flight Club member and wish to make a purchase which exceeds the limit please email flightclub@birdinhand.com.au
