Sixty Clicks Shiraz, 2017
Sixty Clicks is a concept. Normally Boutinot's wines come from mountains or oceans but Central Victoria is just a flat, featureless plain. All we have to describe the place is vines in time and distance. Sixty Clicks in a minute, an hour, frames per second in film and sixty kilometers from one side of this farm to the other.
|How it's made||
The Shiraz grapes used in this blend come from the flatter parts of the vineyard in north-west Victoria. The vineyards run from east to west ensuring they gain the maximum amount of sunlight to give the grapes all the development they need on the red sandy loam soils with a clay sub-soil. The grapes are harvested by machine at night, arriving at the winery to be crushed within the hour and pressed by bag. They are then moved to the fermentation tanks, where they spend 4 weeks with oak staves, on their skins and pumped over four times a day. The final blending of the Shiraz grapes are done under strict supervision of the head winemaker, before being transported to the bottling facility.
A really expressive, bright, contemporary Aussie red. The nose of soft, open, chocolatey fruit has a clove note with a palate of fresh brambly, cherry-red fruit that leads to a gently spicy finish.
Great with a BBQ in the summer, comforting meat casseroles in the winter or just a great all-rounder in between.
