Rascallion Wines A Mother’s Journey 2018
“A highly-awarded Northern Style Shiraz from the Golden Triangle.”
Named in honour of Ross’ mother, a sprightly and vividly articulate 85 year old mother of three, and granny to eight grandchildren. This northern style Shiraz is rich in dark fruit flavours due to the low-yielding vineyards with high fruit concentration.
The wine consists of fruit from a combination of three different parcels from the Golden Triangle in the Helderberg Mountains. All grapes were hand-harvested and matured in 2nd and 4th fill French oak barrels for 18 months before bottling.
An exotic and vibrant Shiraz with elegantly layered tannins and a long lingering finish.
