Loom SV 2015 Shiraz
Dark with piercing bright hues showing off its youth. Aromatics are a touch subdued, in a brooding sort of way almost as if there’s a heap going on but I’m not worthy to be shown. This is pretty much the theme from here in, I keep thinking give me a look and I’m sure to love what I see, yet at this point I’m still in the dark. Could be anything so I’ll sit on the fence for now, but I’ll be sure to be a frequent visitor over the next 12 months with the expectation of at some point being besotted - SG on 22/4/18.
100% Shiraz fruit sourced from our own old-vine, single site LOOM vineyard in McLaren Vale. Fermentation took place on skins in 2 tonne fermenters with two pump-overs daily until dry. The wine was then transferred to a mix of French and American oak, of which 30% was new, to build complexity. (14%ABV)
