McWilliam's Hanwood Estate Shiraz
Region / Harvest
McWilliam's, one of Australia's most highly respected family-owned wine companies, has been at the forefront of Australian winemaking since 1877. McWilliam's Hanwood Estate wines, noted for their complexity and fresh fruit flavors, have been crafted from premium fruit sourced from renowned wine regions in South Eastern Australia.
This Shiraz exhibits a vibrant reddish-purple hue, characteristic of its plum and raspberry fruit flavors. Nestled among the rhubarb and black cherry fruit flavors, layers of chocolate, vanilla and spice characters emerge with hints of oak, giving way to an elegant finish.
The grapes for our 2010 McWilliam’s South Eastern Australia Shiraz were harvested between March and April. Fermentation lasted 6 to 10 days at an average maximum temperature of 65 to 77 degrees. The juice remained in contact with the skins before undergoing malolactic fermentation.
