Vinaceous, Red Right Hand, Shiraz-Grenache-Tempranillo, Margaret RiverVinaceous
Margaret River, WA
Sourced from mature vineyards, 100% Margaret River - hand-picked, open fermented (with 10% whole bunches); Shiraz (56%), Grenache (29%) and Tempranillo (15%); basket pressed into 1st & 2nd use French and American oak barriques for 14 months maturation.
The Red Right Hand is the result of the union of three of the great world varieties each with their individual attributes from the cooler, Margaret River region of Australia to produce a wine of great complexity and interest.
We are all familiar with the hero variety – Shiraz, full of colour, flavour and structure. Blended with Grenache, contributing its heady perfume and sweet fruit mid palate. Bringing the wine together is a small dollop of intense, savoury Tempranillo.
Each component of the wine was fermented separately in open topped vats with traditional fermentation techniques. The resultant wine parcels were matured in a combination of French and American oak barriques for 12 months before blending.
The wine displays awesome colour; deep crimson red, bright and vibrant in hue. The bouquet is a complex mix of ripe berry fruits and savoury aromas.
The palate displays rich and fruit sweet fullness with a complex and savoury textural finish of mature tannin. The Red Right Hand has the structure to reward medium term cellaring but is especially attractive now with its fruit ripe sweetness.
