Richard Hamilton Centurion 123 Year Old Shiraz 2015
The rich concentrated Shiraz nose has elements of ripe plums and raisins enhanced and complexed with vanilla and cinnamon from French oak.
WINEMAKING NOTES Each year we strive to gain even a little more perfection to making this wine. While the essential element in the making of Centurion is the critical quality selection of the fruit from the 1892 plantings, we augment the style using several techniques. All ferments are small scale - we purchased a third vat in 2017 to allow most of the components to be fermented in oak. Some even smaller ferments are hand plunged with some whole bunches to build structure and aromatics. Ultimately, maturation was in a combination of hogsheads and vats with several workings and swapping of vessels to promote longevity of the wine and enhance the palate length.
