2010 DJV Shiraz

2010 DJV Shiraz

Winemaker's Comments

Inspired by previous winemaking legends such as Maurice O’Shea and Murray Tyrrell, this is a modern spin on traditional Hunter Valley Shiraz. The name “DJV” refers to the feeling of déja vu that you may well experience when tasting this wine. Made using a variety of traditional techniques, this Shiraz is intentionally a lighter, “Hunter River Burgundy” style.
Sourced from the alluvial flats of Hermitage Rd, the Trevena vineyard (planted 1966) produces the 'lightness' we are looking for in this style. The acidity profile was balanced by co-fermenting a small portion (6%) of green Semillon ‘verjus’. This was followed by 10 months maturation exclusively in older (5-6 years old) barriques prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes

Bright cherry red in colour, the wine is light on its feet with 'pretty' red berried fruits, some dried herb complexity and superb carry of vibrant silky textured fruit character. A wine of seamless elegance and class that drinks magnificently now, but will reward careful cellaring. Quite intentionally in the lighter end of the medium bodied spectrum, but definitely punches well above its weight.
