Strathbogie Ranges, Victoria, Australia
The Fowles family is very committed to ethical and sustainable viticultural practices, as well as hunting and living off the 800 acre expanse they occupy in this remote region, Matt Fowles launched the Farm to Table range of wines to help promote this deep connection to the land.
This wine is blended from Shiraz parcels from a number of distinctly different Central Victorian sites all which create amazing complexity in the wine. The fruit for this wine was picked from three vineyards across Victoria –Boort Estate, Tallis Vineyards and our own Upton Run vineyard.
Vintage Notes: 2017 was a very cool year, producing lighter, finer style red wines.
This Shiraz was fermented in sweep-arm stainless steel fermenters at 75°F to maximize gentle flavor and color extraction, while preserving primary fruit flavors. Aged for 9 months in a combination of French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels.
PH 3.63 T/A 6.7 g/L Alc 13.7%
