Sophie’s Garden Shiraz
The Garden Series is a Super Premium range of six Shiraz from six of the finest Shiraz producing regions in Australia. Sophie’s Garden reflects the unique terroir of Padthaway. This wine is named after Richard Mintz's wife Sophie.
Black core, magenta rim.
Lifted red fruits and refreshing menthol balanced by generous cloves and other spice notes.
As usual, the cool climate nose is contradicted with the warmer climate palate: more dark fruits, chocolate and spice, but still the subtle menthol adds freshness and length finishing with fine tannins.

Grape Variety Used:
Length/Type of Fermentation:
Crushed into and fermented in five ton open top fermenters with regular pump overs; three daily during peak fermentation to extract color, flavor and tannin. Following 14 days of maceration, the dry free run was drained to tank and the skins pressed to the same tank. 24 hours later the wine was then racked to barrel, where malolactic fermentation took place. Minimal fining and unfiltered.
Length/Type of Aging:
20 months in French oak hogsheads of which 28% were new.
