about this product
'The Yard' label designates Larry Cherubino's single-vineyard wines. This Shiraz is from the Acacia Vineyard in the Frankland River district of the much larger (and diverse) Great Southern Region of Werstern Australia. In this case the 'yard' is a small plot of Shiraz, within the Acacia Vineyard, planted in 1997, that is now yielding exceptional fruit. Grapes are hand-picked and hand-sorted before fermentation in small batches. After four weeks of post-ferment maceration the wine is matured in new and one-year-old oak for six months. Typically, the wine is marked by brooding black-fruit and spice aromas and flavours, soft tannins, and a long silky-textured palate. Ripe fruit characters keep oak in the background. Drink now or cellar for 15+ years.
