Alazarane

Swan Hill Victoria Shiraz. Ripasso Style

 

Produced from our superb vineyards in North Western Victoria, Alazarane Wines are made in a style to truly encapsulate the pure essence of Australian Wine.

 

This incredibly interesting wine has been made utilising the Ripasso method famous in certain vineyards of Italy. This technique saw a percentage of the Shiraz sun dried on wooden racks for several weeks.

 

This sun dried portion of the grapes were added to the balance of normally fermenting Shiraz for an extended maceration. Following fermentation, the wine was racked to a combination of French and American oak of varying ages for maturation prior to bottling.

 

All of this has resulted in a complex wine style of great richness with balance. The wine will benefit from further ageing under correct cellaring conditions.

 

 

Full body, rich round flavours of black cherry, blackberry, plum, bell pepper, black pepper, clove, licorice, dark chocolate and smoked meat.
