2017 Rutherglen Shiraz

Classic Rutherglen Shiraz. Up front spicy fruit driven palate with balancing oak and tannin.

Our two vineyards deliver quite different expressions of Shiraz, with the rich red loam of our Netherby vineyard adding weight and depth of flavour, and the duplex sandy soils in the Quartz Vein Vineyard contributing aromatics and spicy fruit flavours. We typically harvest in a number of small parcels from each vineyard to create a suite of blending options.

The 2017 release is a great example of our house style at Cofield—lifted aromatics, spicy and complex, vibrant Shiraz fruit, all knitted together with 14 months in quality French oak.

Aromatic, spicy and a little more than medium  bodied, this classic Rutherglen Shiraz is drinking beautifully on release. That said those with the patience to cellar over 7-8 years will also be richly rewarded. 

Vegan friendly.
