Leone 2015 Shiraz, Barossa Valley

Colour: Rich and inky red with youthful purple hues.
Aroma: The nose on this perfectly ripe Shiraz has a lifted bouquet – Raspberry, plum, liquorice, chocolate, cedar and pepper notes to name a few. The perfume is lifted and inviting.
Palate: This wine has a ripe & balanced palate, which is beautifully smooth. It tastes of rich, sweet raspberry fruits and the subtle toasty oak is
complimentary to the chocolaty tannins.
Wine: The 2015 vintage provided wines with structure and power. The superb flavours and tannins are approachable now, but will benefit from cellaring if desired. This wine can be enjoyed with chargrilled beef tenderloin, or aged cheddar cheeses.
Winemaking: The grapes for this wine are grown on the Estate vineyards in the Barossa Valley. Single wire trellising, low cropping level and an ideal ripening season allowed the grapes to mature to their optimum ripeness. Barrel matured in
medium toasted American oak using 15% new barrels in the blend. Fermented at 25 –
28c, twice daily rack and returns into open vats increases the oxygen contact during fermentation. Optimum skin contact defines the soft tannins and gives structure on the palate.
