North Run Shiraz


North Run white label is made with finesse in mind, we look for elegance rather than brute force, and handle the wine accordingly. Often first pick of the vineyard, we use clone (R6W28) which provides blue fruit fragrance at lower Baumé, small batch open ferments with a mixture of plunging and pump overs 30% whole bunch for the vintage, wild yeast fermented basket pressed to barrel (20% new).

”Clove spice, dark and red berry fruits, sniff of fennel/liquorice, white pepper and some mint suggestions in the bouquet. Sinewy, chewy palate with brambly, black currant fruit flavours jostling around. Has a succulence, tension and firmness that appeals, then again, it slides across the palate on sheets of fine tannin too. It’s got some energy, and I like the unique personality here. Medium bodied, savoury, something to pore over. Good gear.”
