Rare Shiraz 2010
The Rare Shiraz is sourced from the famous old low yielding vineyard in Ebenezer called the Hoffman Vineyard where the soil is a red/brown earth over a dark red clays with a separating layer of chalky limestone. The soil type allows the development of rich fruit flavours and ripe
tannins. The yield for 2010 was between 1 tone to the acre. There was one barrel made of this utterly delicious wine.
Fermented in 1 and 2 tonne open fermenters, the Shiraz was fermented on skins for 14 days at a cool temperature to enhance the pure berry fruit and is hand plunged 3 times daily. It completed primary and MLF in oak and then matured for 36 months in oak,matured on lees to maintain fruit profile and animation, minimal SO2. Topped up every 3 weeks.
The 2010 Rare Shiraz spent 36 months in: 100% new French Puncheon.
The 2010 Rare Shiraz is a statuesque, powerful and deeply flavoured wine. This wine has a lushness and voluptuousness we have never experienced before at Landhaus. The wine has plush dense fruit backed by magnificent mouth feel and weight, matured in 100% new French
Puncheon. The 2010 Rare Shiraz is a concentrated, velvety, smile inducing, “wow” wine.
