2016 Maddox Flat Shiraz
Famous for its powerful varietal intensity and structure, this wine is an epitome of Padthaway Shiraz. The fruit was sourced from premium vineyard sites blessed with ideal growing condition, and hand-harvested at optimum ripeness to capture all the delicate flavours and tannins. A 10-day ferment at 25degc temperature was followed by 30-day post ferment maceration. Once the desired tannin concentration was achieved, the wine was pressed off the skins and gravity filled into New and old French oak for 24 months maturation period.
The Padthaway wine region is found within the Limestone Coast and is represented by major wine companies and an increasing number of private producers. The region has over 4,000 hectares which consist of mostly Shiraz, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon taking up 50% of the land.
