Plan B "MR" Modern Red 2019
50% Syrah; 50% Pinot Noir. Frankland River Shiraz and Pinot Noir from 20 year old vines, hand harvested, co-fermented and crushed into open top concrete fermenters and left on skins for 8 days. Barrel matured in French oak barriques for 7 months – 25% new, 75% seasoned oak.
This is an unusual blend which combines the elegance and floral notes of Pinot Noir with the richness and spice of Shiraz to great effect. Pretty, floral, red cherry and strawberry aromatics with the raspberry and spice of cool climate Shiraz adding punch to the palate. It's soft in tannin, juicy in fruit and eminently gluggable.
