Matured in French oak barrel for 18 months.
The 2019 vintage started out with the growing season being dry and it continued that way, with below average rainfall for all of the months. Budburst and early vine growth were delayed in September with below average minimum temperatures, but then caught up during October and November with warmer than average days. January and December resulted in above average maximum temperatures. With February closer to average maximums and below average minimum, it made for the ideal timing, and resulted in the perfect conditions for ripening the smaller crops. By the end of the second week in April we had finished harvest, which was one of the earliest on record.
Colour: Dark deep red with a garnet core.
Nose: Rich dark red fruits with intense sweet oak.
Palate: A full and complex structure with mouth-filling intense black fruits. Rich sweet oak spice giving a round, full and complex structure.
Overall this wine is still very young holding fresh acidity and with careful cellaring will assist the wine to develop and further evolve. The 2019 Lost Penny Almond Row Shiraz has an overall sweet spiced nose and palate with an elegant structure built around mouth filling rich berry characters.
