Nugan Estate ‘Third Generation’ Shiraz 2014
The great Australian Shiraz is a lovely, medium bodied style. Appealing flavours of a rope berry fruit, spioce and black pepper with supple tannins and a long, smooth finish. Enjoy with supple tannins and a long, smooth finish.
89 pts Tanzer/Vinous
Bright violet color. Cherry, licorice and musky flowers on the fragrant nose. Smoky gently sweet and focused, with fresh cherry and blackberry flavors gaining energy and spiciness with air. A long, supple, fruit-dominated finish shows fine-grained tannins and a late touch of candied flowers. A very complex wine for the price. — Josh Raynolds
The fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness in the cool of the night to preserve delicate fruit flavour and inhibit wild yeast fermentation. After crushing / destemming and inoculation with a pure yeast culture, fermentation took place in static fermenters with American oak. Thereafter, the wine underwent maturation for 12 months in new and seasoned American and French Oak before final blending and bottling.
