Arno Barossa Shiraz

A voluptuous wine, medium-bodied and redolent in pure, ripe dark plum fruits with hints of Asian spice, blueberry (which for us is characteristic of the vineyard), violets, frangipani high notes and soft, gentle French oak. Compact, bright, crisp and just delicious drinking. The source for Arno's Shiraz is a vineyard planted in the 1930s in Stonewell in the Barossas central valley between Tanunda and Nuriootpa. For Arno, the two most important decisions are when to pick and when to press the wine. Picking early at the right time retains freshness of fruit and richness of flavour without sacrificing ripeness of tannin and that is the key. Arno hand plunge ferment twice daily and constantly taste the wine until the desired structure and mouthfeel is reached. The wine then goes to the press and spends 12-14 months on old French oak barrels. No pushing the wine in a direction it doesnt want to go.
