2015 Pure Clare Clare Valley Shiraz
What's big, purple and finally making a reappearance in the Cracka shed?
Pure Clare Shiraz of course! This mega-rich and juicy Clare Valley red has been MIA for a while now, and gee-whizz we miss its delicious berry style!
But just today we've had some good news. The brand new 2015 vintage of this Cracka favourite has finally landed and we're excited. Giddy with excitement, like a six-year-old waiting for Santa. Thankfully, this new '15 has delivered a whole lotta Clare Shiraz purple fruit, just like what we wanted, the style full, chunky and with loads of flavour.
Fermented separately using a range of techniques; this creates an array of blending options and choices for the final wine. Between 12-15 months in a mix of French & American oak, impart softness and flavour.
Deep dark red appearance. Lashes of mulberry jam, a little light black pepper, and an light whack of American oak vanillin infiltration.
Tannins are quite tight, and show that this small but brave little fella still has a while to go yet. Will sit down for 5-7 years no worries whatsoever.
