2014 Kingston Estate Echelon Shiraz

Regular price $16.99 Sale

Our Kingston Echelon range showcases South Australia’s finest varieties from the finest regions. Only wines of exceptional fruit vibrancy and flavour intensity are selected for Echelon, wines that have perfect drinkability now and the ability to age beautifully.

Winemaking
Parcels from three premium regional vineyards were selected prior to harvest, with fruit handled as separate parcels from each until final blending.

The fruit was fermented in static fermenters and pumped over 3 times per day for the first 3 days, then reduced to twice a day. Ferment temperatures were allowed to peak at 24-26°C. Only the light pressings were combined with the free run juice. The wines were left to settle for 7-14 days and then racked in American and French oak barrels for 18 months maturation.
Winemaker: Bill Moularadellis
