Vinexus - Infinity of Wine Duitsland
The 2005 vintage was definitely one of the cooler ones this century. This long ripening period has given us finely balanced classic Shiraz. Excellent fruit quality with high natural acidity meant very little intervention from the wine maker. It also allowed us to give extended post maceration on the skins to ensure good tannin structure therefore balancing the fruit.Appearance: Ruby crimson. Nose: Herbs, spice, cinnamon and chocolate. Palate: Plums, raspberry and dark chocolate on entry. Middle palate has definite savoury liquorice tones backed by dark fruits. This all finishes with fine tannins and balanced wood use.After pressing the wine was put into 90% French Oak, 5% American and 5% Hungarian Oak. 25% of these barrels were new and the rest 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill. The wine remained in barrel for 1 year and then bottled.
