Petaluma Shiraz 2012
Petaluma, founded in 1976, crafts ultra-premium wines by carefully selecting the best sites within a particular region suited to a chosen variety. This is our 'distinguished vineyards' philosophy. This pioneering attitude towards responsive and instinctive viticulture and winemaking is as uncompromising and true today as it was more than 35 years ago.
From the BV Vineyard on the eastern edge of the Adelaide Hills region, hand-picked together with some viognier, for a 14-day fermentation and maceration, then to French oak for 17 months. Bright crimson-purple; a distinguished and notably complex wine, with an array of black fruits, licorice and pepper, tannins and oak playing a positive, complementary role.
