GRAND RESERVE SHIRAZ
The Beresford grand reserve shiraz is the pinnacle of our commitment to the world-famous McLaren Vale wine region. It brings together the most exceptional grapes from meticulously selected low-yielding vineyard sites from various sub-regions within the district.
This is the pure essence of McLaren Vale Shiraz – restrained but powerful, intense yet opulent. It has a deep plum colour and a distinctive regional aroma of red berry fruits, subtle vanilla and milk chocolate. The palate is round, rich and full, with complex blackberry, blackcurrant and mulberry flavour, with finely balanced tannins hat give the wine structure and longevity. The finish is rich, long and complex.
The grapes are fermented in small open fermenters under header boards with extra time on skins to maximise colour, fruit intensity and tannin structure. It is then aged in two and three-year-old French oak barrels for 16-18 months before selection and blending. The wine is matured in bottle for many years prior to release, for harmony of structure and flavour.
