Grove Estate Hilltops Nutcase Fortified Shiraz (500ml) 


The Nutcase Shiraz is a fortified Shiraz we made in 2016.

The SH95 Dam block of Shiraz got away on us a bit and was pretty ripe by the time we picked it.

The skins were very dry and well suited to making a fortified style of wine, so that is the way we went adding a little Brandy spirit at the end of ferment which resulted in an alcohol content of 19%

The wine has dry and not overly sweet tender beetroot and vanilla bean flavours. It warms your inners as it goes down and is very moorish.

A superb aperitif or after dinner drink with rich blue cheese.
