The Listening Station Shiraz – Produced by Boutinot Australia.
Boutinout Australia produce quintessentially Australian wines, consistent in quality, hugely appealing that have gained a loyal following.
This Shiraz is sourced from ancient Victorian soils in order to achieve a wine with greater finesse, purity and structure as well as typical eucalypt flavours and saline finish associated with the area.
The Science Bit:
Picked at night and crushed within an hour of picking before being sent to the fermentation tanks. 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.
What does it go with?
Drink with Moroccan lamb tagine, roast vegetables and hard cheeses.
