Margan 2017 Shiraz
The grapes for this wine came from the Timbervines Vineyard which is part of the original Lindemans Fordwich Sill plantings of the late 1960’s. This 30 acre block was planted on original Busby vine stock and has been farmed using vertical shoot positioning. It crops at around 1 tonne to the acre which is very low. Picked at around the 13.5 baume mark, the climate of the Hunter provides us with medium bodied reds with great natural acid and lower alcohol.
Bright forest berries accentuated with a hint of white pepper follows through to a rich but elegant wine. Great natural acidity adds another level of complexity, and makes for a mouthwatering aftertaste..
