Most of us can only dream of drinking wine like the Maurice O'Shea Shiraz. Not to worry, because Philip is cut from the same cloth and shows the same elegance and freshness of style. You would think that a hot region like Hunter Valley would produce massively heady, alcoholic reds. Not so - through careful viticulture, this weighs in at a restrained 13.5%, and it's made in a much more delicate, restrained, savoury style than its Barossa cousins. It shows pretty red fruit aromas - strawberry, raspberry and red cherry; and a lithe, silky texture. On first opening it comes across slightly lean, but this is easily rectified with a bit of air, so I highly recommend decanting it 30 minutes before you start to enjoy it. Drink 2018-2020.

Winemaking

Crushed into a combination of open top and static fermenters. Following a gentle three day pre-fermentation cold soak the wines were inoculated with a cultured yeast. Colour & tannin were extracted from the skins by a combination of plunging and pumping-over for a period of up to ten days. After pressing the wines were transferred to a combination of stainless steel, to give freshness, and oak barrels, ten percent new to give richness & complexity, for a maturation period of 15 months. Once optimum maturation was obtained, the parcels were blended and prepared for bottling.
