2017 Trove Estate "secret squirrel" WA Shiraz
Nick Bulleid MW's Tasting Notes
Background

Late winter and early spring brought frequent rain events to the south of WA, starting the growing season with plenty of soil moisture. The result was vigorous vine growth, which provided some challenges, but the late summer and harvest period was cool and dry, producing elegantly structured wines.

The Shiraz grapes were crushed and fermented cool, at 25°C, to avoid strong tannins and maximise fruit flavours. The wine was bottled after 12 months maturation with French oak.

Colour
Mid garnet-red.

Nose
Attractive red fruits and cedar from bottle-age. Hints of red plum and spices.

Structure / Palate
Rich and soft. Full flavours of sweet fruits and spicy development. Dried herbs appear with more time in glass. Warmth from alcohol adds body.

This is a nicely mature West Australian Shiraz that’s fully ready for enjoyment with pasta and barbecued meals. Don’t squirrel it away. It will be at its best over the next year or two.
