Tapanappa Wrattonbully Cabernet Shiraz 75cl 13.5%

Wrattonbully Cabernet Shiraz has very ripe fruit flavours produced from the exceptionally small 2007 vintage. Despite the ripeness the alcohol is in balance and the silky ripe tannins meld with the ripe fruit flavours. This is a red with pedigree; a nephew of one of Australia’s all-time great reds, the famous 79 Petaluma Coonawarra.

Tapanappa Cabernet Shiraz retains the elegant structure and the earthy, anise and Eucalypt smoke flavours of the Joanna, Wrattonbully terroir.

On the nose there is a complex array of flavours with brambly, curranty fruit vying with smoky, spicy aniseed notes. On the palate there is fresh acidity to balance the sweet, concentrated fruit while fresh eucalyptus flavours help to bring a lifted quality to the whole.

Bottled in February 2009 without filtration. Only 400 cases made

Tapanappa’s Joanna Wrattonbully Cabernet-Shiraz is derived from the pioneering vineyards on the unique red clay loam over the 34 million years old limestone at the Joanna cross roads in a climate ideally suited to this traditional Australian blend.

2007 Tapanappa Wrattonbully Cabernet Shiraz has the ripe fruit flavours and texture of this exceptionally small and early vintage. Despite the ripeness the alcohol is in balance and the silky ripe tannins meld with the ripe fruit flavours. The wine preserves the elegant structure and the earthy, anise and eucalypt smoke flavours of the Joanna Wrattonbully terroir.

In more detail ... The blend is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Shiraz. 2007 enjoyed a very warm summer and the fruit achieved excellent levels of ripeness, although the crop was small. The juice was fermented in open tubs of 1 ton capacity and received a 4 day maceration beforehand and a 9-day post-fermentation soaking in the sealed tubs. It was then passed to French oak barriques, 70% new, for malolactic fermentation. The wine spent 20 months in barrel before being bottled unfiltered.
