THE WINE: The 2022 The Buffalo Shiraz is classic King Valley Shiraz. A vibrant deep red, with lifted red fruit aromas of cranberry, boysenberry and plum, with a background of toast and spicy oak. The palate echoes the aromas on the palate with red forest fruits, a vibrant cool climate, cool vintage acidity, bringing life and intensity to the wine and its generous full fruited palate.

THE VINTAGE: The vineyards cycled through the growing season with their own individual rhythm, responding to the challenges of a wet, cool spring, and a long, dry summer to emerge with clean, naturally balanced fruit. The outcome is a low yielding, high quality vintage with strong aging potential.

THE WINEMAKING: The Buffalo Shiraz was picked on the 6th of April, with a baumé of 14.5 and temperature of 16°C. The wine was crushed to a rotary fermenter and was rolled four times twice daily which allows excellent tannin and flavour extraction while preserving primary fruit characters. It was fermented between 24-26°C with specially selected yeast isolated from the Rhone region and was fermented to dryness on skins. The wine was pressed off to tank and kept warm where it underwent a slow secondary fermentation for two months. This allows for tannin polymerisation and colour stabilization, giving a silky mouthfeel and vibrant youthful colour. The wine was minimally fined and filtered prior to it being bottled. 

FOOD MATCHES: Excellent with artisanal Veneto sausage and chargrilled fennel topped with a spicy ragu.
