Made by Boutinot is more than just their vineyards and cellars in France, Italy and England. It's their longstanding relationships with hundreds of winegrowers around the world. People in places like Australia, Argentina and the USA. Boutinot craft their wines by both vinifying fruit from their own vineyards, and by selecting and blending wine from partner growers. Bouinot's dedicated product managers (including two Masters of Wine) work hand in hand with their experienced and highly talented winemakers and blenders. Together they bring our winemaking philosophy to life. It's their mission to ensure all Made by Boutinot wines are crafted to taste the way a Boutinot wine should. Never losing sight of their vision to create high quality wines at every price point.
The Shiraz grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled tanks maintained at 22 - 25ºC to avoid extracting any harsh tannins, with the fermentations pumped over to extract good colour. 20% of the final blend is barrel aged.
Bright, aromatic and juicy on the nose with just a touch of naughty bacon fat. True to the varietal, the tiny proportion of Malbec in this blend gives a flowery perfume. This vintage is our brightest, most dangerously drinkable Shiraz to date due to its fine, bright fruit and soft silky elegance.
