Curtis Heritage SA MV Shiraz 2017
Curtis' Heritage products are excellent quality expressions of the international varietals that wine lovers love so much.
Carefully selected parcels of vineyards are harvested at night when the grapes are cool and fermented for 7 days. Heritage SA MV Shiraz is deep and ruby in color. It has a nose of dark smoky chocolate with subtle French oak nuances. Full-bodied with an overflowing, complex mix of chocolate, vanilla, and berry flavors. Sweet mid-palate, long and balanced finish. The wine was aged for 18 months in oak barrels, with a mix of oak types ranging from new to 2 year old, French and American oak.
