CLUB PRIVILEGES

2015 Covenant Shiraz


The Covenant Shiraz is composed from several premium estate and privately owned vineyards throughout the Clare Valley.
    • Winemaking

      Selected parcels of Shiraz were harvested and fermented separately across a range of vineyard sites and allowed to mature in a range of new and more seasoned small French oak casks for eighteen months. The wines complexity and ageing potential further enhanced by bottling the final cuvée unfined and unfiltered.

      Appearance

      Brick red in colour with youthful crimson hues.

      Nose

      Lifted and commanding, the nose reeking of fresh licorice, riper plums, liniment, hints of soy sauce and smoky char.

      Palate

      Richly flavoured with a strong linear focus, supple tannins and a long finish, the palate carries over sweet plums, fresh licorice and soy sauce in addition to introducing savoury meats and charcuterie to the mix. Perfectly encapsulated the regions precision and personality.

      • Pushes ripeness of fruit and prominent oak to the edge without tipping over. Dark cherry, plum and licorice characters sit cheek by jowl with savoury, cedary elements and suede-like tannin in a full-bodied but easily accessible package. Will age well too.
