Lou Miranda Estate 2012 Cordon Cut Shiraz Barossa Valley
(ENG) Colour Deep rich crimson red with ruby hues
Aroma Concentrated aroma full of rich berry flavours,
spices and smooth vanillin oak and dark chocolate
Palate A full bodied wine displaying great palate
weight, length, structure and texture. Juicy berry
and red plum characters are complemented by
spicy flavours and ripe tannins. The oak delivers
persistence of flavour and length.
Wine Echoing traditional Italian Amarone techniques,
our Cordon Cut Shiraz uses a unique wine making
approach where vine branches (cordons) are
cut just prior to harvesting. Starved of nutrition
from the vine, the berries concentrate in flavour
intensity for up to a week before careful fruit
selection. The resulting wine exemplifies the full
rich flavours of the Barossa Valley, with wonderful
ripe fruit and excellent tannin structure.
This wine can be enjoyed with Venison or rack of
lamb and will compliment rich sauces. Enjoy now
or cellar for 10 or more years. To enhance this
wine please decanter.
