In the Winemakers own words,
“I would consider myself a precision winemaker. A good balance between being technical and being intuitive. I tinker with my wines…a lot. I will ponder if I want to take a certain action for weeks on end. I like wines with weight, wines with a lot of colour and tannin, but they need to have balance. I record everything, nothing wasted and nothing taken for granted. That is the key. I have tasted wines with 100% new oak and a 15.5 % alcohol that is in complete harmony”.
Shiner has a seductive bouquet of blackcurrants, raspberries and a slight hint of spice. A complex and graceful palate, this wine has generous fruit flavour and purity, accompanied by ripe tannins. It punches well above its weight!
