Vin de Garage Shiraz Carignan
Save 10% on this in a mixed dozen!
This wine is a blend inspired by our cousins in the South of France, who showed us how the acidity of heat-loving Carignan can give elegance to Shiraz. This is a blend of early picked shiraz (40%), late picked shiraz (30%) and Carignan (30%). All parcels were crushed and fermented using wild yeast, no acidification, no fining or other additives. The wine was matured for 7 months in old french oak puncheons before racking and bottling in January 2023.
No sulfites, added yeast, fining agents or any other additives were used from harvest to the finished product.
