Leasingham Classic Clare

Classic Clare Shiraz fruit is principally sourced from the windswept dry land Schober’s Vineyard just north of Auburn and the mature Provis vineyard 5 kilometres north east of Clare. The low yielding vines – on variable soils of terra rossa and slate – yield extremely concentrated Shiraz fruit. The wine is batch vinified in small open fermenters. Nowadays it is matured in a blend of new (60-80%) and old French barriques for approximately 18 months. The resulting wines are richly flavoured, with highly defined plum/berry/mocha fruit characters, chocolaty tannins and integrated savoury oak. These opulent densely packed wines are “regionally hallmarked” with a strong, firm structure. The 1994 vintage won the coveted Jimmy Watson trophy at the Melbourne Wine Show."Andrew Caillard MW
