Koltz Pagan Shiraz

The 2008 "Pagan" Shiraz is purple/opaque in colour.

The aroma is dominated by a super-fragrant Amarone-style perfume with notes of allspice, licorice, blackberry, and blueberry and tar.

Ultra intense, sweet, yet dry, this is a big, structured, lengthy wine which promises to please now but will evolve for a decade.

Winemaking: Grapes are hand selected and the picked into drying trays and undergo 6 to 8 weeks of drying. They are then crushed and fermented in open fermenters for 20 days and then very lightly pressed using a basket press. Wine is kept in oak for 18 months before bottling.
