Sacred Hill Syrah Dolcetto (2013)

Ripe summer berries with a sprinkle of soft spices make this Shiraz Dolcetto blend sweet enough to enjoy with a pizza or antipasto platter. The rich magenta hue only adds to the pleasant feeling of digging through a lolly bag. Our tip? Chill slightly before swilling.

Region: Riverina

General Characteristics: Medium Sweet / Light Bodied

Vintage Conditions: 2013 saw low rainfall in Spring with January being quite dry and warm. The dry weather allowed fruit to reach optimum ripeness providing a good balance of acidity and flavour. Some light showers in late February to help freshen the fruit with vintage starting later than usual but finishing quickly by the end of March.

Winemaking: The Shiraz fruit was selected to enhance the soft tannin and spice component of this wine and the Dolcetto “the little sweet one” supplements with an abundance of fruit flavours.

Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 8.5 % pH: 3.3 TA: 6.33 g/L

Cellaring: Best enjoyed chilled whilst young and exhibiting the fresh summer berry fruits.
