Broken Shackle Classic Red South Eastern Australia 2018

Easy drinking Australian red with some jammy sweet fruit and a hint of mint and vanilla on the finish.


Producer Note
It is the simplicity of the fruit, the sheer crunchy gluggable vivacity of the liquid, that first established Australia as everyone's favourite vineyard. It's what we aim for in Broken Shackle. Berton Vineyards is one of our longest-standing producers. Having established his own vineyard in 1996 in South Australia's Eden Valley, after a lot of hard yakka Bob Berton purchased a state-of-the-art winery in Yenda, NSW, in 2007 and now sources fruit in the heart of the Riverina.

Vintage
Warm, dry conditions and no rain during the harvest season resulted in a fantastic vintage, with little disease incidence or pressure to harvest. As a result, the colour is deep and flavours are ripe and intense. Most of the Shiraz for this dry red blend was harvested during March, when the fruit reached a Baumé of approximately 14. Vineyard
The vine age is varied, but all vines have been spur pruned and are generally trained on a single wire cordon trellising system. The vines are planted at approximately 1.8 metres apart with 3.6 metres between the rows, to allow machinery access. The soil styles in the vineyards are varied, with each terroir adding its own characteristic to the final wine.

Winemaking
The grapes were fermented in stainless steel vertical fermenters for four to six days at temperatures between 26°C and 30°C on French untoasted and toasted oak. When the young wine reached 1° Baumé, it was pressed via screw press into stainless steel storage tanks and left to ferment until dry. It was then racked into stainless steel storage vessels with French oak where it underwent malolactic fermentation. Once this was complete the wine was clarified via centrifuge into stainless steel storage.

Tasting Note
An easy drinking, full-flavoured Australian red with aromas of ripe, sun-kissed plum and red currant over toasty mocha and spicy oak. The palate is full and intense, with notes of rich plum, blueberry and mocha underpinned by ripe tannins which impart great structure and length to the palate.
