2013 Philip’s Frolic Shiraz - SOLD OUT
We picked the 2013 vintage after a drier, sunnier season than the previous two wettest years on record and we harvested quite late on 13 April 2013. I expected more grapes from a sunny year, but no, the bunches were compact and the grapes small and intensely flavoured with peppery spice – a very good shiraz characteristic. It has matured into an exotic vintage in the classic Shiraz style of L’Hermitage on the Rhone, oaked in French barrels for a year. It is similar velvet spice to 2011 and 2012 vintages but displays delightful fruit and spice character which stands out as a treat for your palate.
