Gundog Estate Shiraz 2014
Gundog Estate was established in 2006 by the Burton family. The brand follows a simple but effective philosophy of producing small quantities of super premium, regionally distinct wine. With fruit sourced from contrasting terroirs in the Hunter Valley and Canberra District, the primary focus of production for Gundog Estate is Semillon and Shiraz. Through a measured winemaking approach that reflects a thoughtful combination of innovation and respect for tradition, Gundog Estate has become one of Australia’s leading new boutique wine producers.
The Estate Shiraz was fermented in open top tanks prior to maturation in top quality French oak. For this 100% single vineyard wine, we matured in barrel for 12 months in total to further enhance structure and add another level of complexity. I find the 2014 Estate Shiraz offers amazing levels of fruit concentration, with velvety tannins and great mouthfeel. A wine like this really typifies the style and quality of Shiraz produced in the Canberra district.
