Meerea Park XYZ Shiraz 2007

Meerea Park XYZ Shiraz 2007

An experimental wine from Meerea Park, and since ‘RWT’ was taken, they decided to call it ‘XYZ’. This wine had 50% whole bunch (stalks included) fermentation and then was treated to 100% new French Hogsheads, not that you can really tell. On the nose, red fruits and quite a bit of stalkiness, green fruits and some pepper and spice; clean and inviting aromas. The palate is exotic, with cherries and a smoky stalkiness, lovely mouthfeel and almost some white grape characters. Lovely freshness and balance, fine tannins and top notch finish.
