The Hedonist Moonvine Shiraz Blend

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

We love a bit of wanton hedonism in the Cracka offices, so we were chuffed to find a wine label that celebrates the pursuit. The Hedonist is a result of Walter Clappis’ amazing career where he amassed an amazing 37 trophies and 124 gold medals. The Hedonist is a result of small batch winemaking farmed bio-dynamically, so all you get in the glass is the taste of Mother Nature’s vines. This is a classic trio of Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot blended to perfection to create a wine laden with soft fruit, a generous mouthfeel and defined structure. It’s rich and soft with a lingering finish.

Winemaker's Notes

These three varieties were blended together and then matured in one year old American and French Oak hogs heads for 18 months, giving the wine the benefit and subtle flavours of oak maturation without detracting from the fruit.

The varieties were fermented separately in open, traditional three tonne fermenters, lightly pressed and all pressings were returned to the free-run.

Appearance: - Shinny, bright, deep purple with crimson hues

Nose: - Strawberries, cherry berry and plum augmented by the subtle oak

Palate: - Rich, flavoursome, full-bodied - yet smooth and soft. Lingering fruit flavours long after swallowed. A truly beautiful wine, which is made to drink now to 5 years.
