Tall Horse Shiraz (The Orange One) is full of rich, ripe well rounded pronounced ripe fruit flavours with an untamed spicy edge and deep rich colour. Supple and smooth yet still well structured. Fermented on the skins for 7 days at 24 – 28°C with three aerations per day. After pressing, the young wine is matured on oak where malolactic fermentation is completed. The wine is left on the staves for a further 3 months. A very light filtration before bottling ensures the conservation of intrinsic cultivar traits
