Light in body and made as an easy drinking style, showing a lovely honest fruit nose and a palate of macerated cherry and red berry flavours.
This New Norcia Abbey Shiraz is made from old Shiraz vines grown on the certified organic vineyard at the foot of Bindoon Hill.
The vineyard is dry grown and the fruit handpicked. The lack of irrigation leads to a greater fruit intensity and character as well as seasonal variations. The rainfall influences the amount of moisture available while variations in temperature, particularly at picking, can also have a significant effect on the vintage.
This greater influence of the season on a particular vintage intensifies the regional character of the wine.
