Hope Estate The Ripper Shiraz 2014
The grapes used to produce this wine are from Hope Estate’s "Nob Hill" vineyard in the Geographe Region of Western Australia. The fruit is crushed there and then transported by truck across the outback to our East coast winery, where they are fermented and bottled. The must is chilled for this three-day road trip and arrives with amazing color and tannin extraction from its time in transit. This extraction time ensures huge berry fruit, spicy nutmeg, mocha characters and a palate full of flavor. That’s why we call it the "Ripper”, an Australian term for great!
