2014 Mythology Shiraz
Vibrant deep red.
Enticing ripe plums and brambleberries, with hints of cacao, anise, and dry autumn leaves.
An opulent and complex palate of plum, ripe cherry and dark chocolate. The seamless oak integration and generous palate weight is complemented by persistent length and fine, chalky tannins.
Quite a wet winter was followed by intense heat mid summer, leading to lower than average yields. This was followed by the longest ripening period in quite a few years, finishing well into May for some varieties.
The selected parcels of ultra-premium fruit from the sub-regions of Glenroy and Comaum were picked in the first week of April, and fermented individ-ually in 4.5t open fermenters. The wines were pressed off to barrel to com-plete primary alcoholic and malolactic fermentation and then initially ma-tured separately for 18 months. Primary blending and a further 22 months of maturation have allowed the individual components to harmonise into a balanced yet powerful wine.
With careful cellaring, this wine will gracefully age for the next 15 years.
Fire roasted quail with spiced golden vegetable.
