Shiraz (100%), CANBERRA DISTRICT
The 2018-2019 season presented ideal conditions for vine health in the Canberra District. A generally dry Spring and Summer and warm conditions allowed the grapes to ripen in stress-free conditions, producing shiraz grapes with fantastic spice, flesh, density and backbone
The Marked Tree Red comprises hand-worked parcels of shiraz from vineyards in and around Murrumbateman. The mix of granite and shale soils produce fruit which is both perfumed and elegantly structured as well as savoury, textured and rich.
The grapes were hand-harvested at between 12.5 and 13.5 Baume. Fermentation with whole bunches took place in open fermenters which were worked by pigeage to extract flavour and tannin. Parcels went through a natural malolactic fermentation and ageing in a mix of new and seasoned Allier and Troncais oak. Blending and bottling took place in December 2020.
The wine’s lively crimson colour is accompanied by a fragrant bouquet of dark cherry, blackberry, pepper and aniseed, with a savoury, textured mouthfeel. Although weighted for early drinking, the 2019 Marked Tree Red has a sturdy spine and will age gracefully.
The Marked Tree Red (vintages ’05, ’09, ’15) took out theRed Wine of Provenance Trophyat the 2016 National Wine Show of Australia.
