Bress Gold Chook Shiraz
Heathcote
Available in cases of 6
Following a visit to France where he studied the ancient pastoral practices of breeding the world's best chickens, Adam Marks gained the inspiration to create great Australian wines in the very same manner, adopting an artisanal approach to production, employing traditional, age old methods. Gold Label is the flagship Shiraz by one of Victoria's most adroit, small batch producers. An opulent effort vinified from parcels of the most intense fruit, bottled without fining or filtration, which may deposit a harmless sediment, so decanting is a must.

Shiraz was selected from two vineyards at either ends of Heathcote appellation. The grower uses traditional viticultural techniques of organics and crop thinning to produce crops of less than 1½ tonnes to the acre. A combination of whole bunches and gently crushed fruit are introduced to open fermenters. A slow vinification is initiated by indigenous yeasts, treated to hand plunging thrice daily. Post pressing the wine was transferred to French oak hogsheads for full malolactic, followed by a gravity forced barrel to barrel racking and maturation for a year.
 
An intense and vibrant crimson colour, deep, dark, inky. A complex array of black fruit aromas, spice, cloves and plum, oaken characters of char and vanillian spice. The palate is tightly packed full of black fruit, spice, cloves, and plum. The oak characters are beautifully integrated into the wine, providing structure and adding power, balance and a savoury richness. Bress should be decanted prior to serving, enjoyable now and will reward cellaring.
