2019 Elderton Helbig 1915 Shiraz
There were only 886 bottles of the 2019 vintage produced, as production was hampered by early season heatwaves and high winds during flowering. As a result, the 2019 is a dense and dark wine which still manages elegance and structure. Flavours of plum, mocha and cool tar are supported with beautiful French oak and there is a firm tannin structure that underpins the wonderful fruit through the palate.
As our Winemaker Brock Harrison notes, “Our 2019 Helbig 1915 Shiraz is hand picked, fermented in a large format oak barrel (1500 litres) and left on skins in this closed vessel for several weeks. This results in very gentle and slow extraction of the bold tannins synonymous with the Helbig fruit. The wine was then pressed and spent a couple of winters in some of our favourite French oak.
