Aaldering Estate Shiraz 2016
Lovely described as liquid caviar, this truly reflects our Terroir.
Concentrated spice but yet sweet, hidden behind a blueberry treat.
Even hints of a Jasmine flower, will be enjoyed in this flavour tower…

Winemaking Report
2016 was one of the earliest harvests ever.
Some varieties were harvested three weeks earlier than usual. Dryer conditions prevailed
compared to 2014 and for the first time irrigation was monitored closely with modern
technology. Definitely one of our best vintages over the past decade. Cooler conditions
prevailed which resulted in very good flavour and colour production.

Aging Potential
Enjoy right now or age up to 6-8 years. Bottled with a natural cork closure, in order to
ensure a unique aging capacity. Ideal serving temperature between 16-18°C/61-64°F.

Food Matches
Pate, game, carbonade flamande, braised abalone, red bell pepper, coriander, rosemary.
