Nugan Estate 'Third Generation' Shiraz 2013 - 4 bts in stock

89 pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (JR) - This lively, gently tannic shiraz shows very good balance and complexity for the money.

Tasting Notes

The great Australian Shiraz is a lovely, medium bodied style. Appealing flavours of a rope berry fruit, spioce and black pepper with supple tannins and a long, smooth finish. Enjoy with supple tannins and a long, smooth finish.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

89 pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (JR)
Vivid ruby. Fresh red and dark fruits and candied flowers on the fragrant nose. Suave and nicely delineated, offering juicy blackberry and licorice flavors lifted by a floral element and a hint of black pepper. This lively, gently tannic shiraz shows very good balance and complexity for the money. Note that the Third Generation series of wines, which all deliver outstanding value, is named Pie in the Sky for certain American markets.



Winemaker Notes

The fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness in the cool of the night to preserve delicate fruit flavour and inhibit wild yeast fermentation. After crushing / destemming and inoculation with a pure yeast culture, fermentation took place in static fermenters with American oak. Thereafter, the wine underwent maturation for 12 months in new and seasoned American and French Oak before final blending and bottling.
