Love Over Gold's debut release is the 2014 Shiraz, sourced from old vines, hand destemmed (except for the 10% whole clusters) and aged in a single two-year-old puncheon. Yes, quantities are that small (50 cases), so if this wine sounds like your jam, get after it. It's restrained on the nose, with hints of pencil shavings and dried thyme framing raspberry and boysenberry fruit, then seems to expand on the medium-bodied palate, where it offers ample intensity without excess weight. Those fruit flavors are backed by supple, silky tannins and plenty of length and concentration on the finish, where the wine picks up savory overtones of black olive and espresso.

Love over Gold is made with a deft touch. The wine is magical, its core of fruit caresses the palate and displays great persistence. Love Over Gold?s tertiary aromas and minerality create complexity and drive into an extremely long finish.

MATURATION
Love Over Gold is seasoned in a two year old French Puncheon.

AGEING POTENTIAL
Love Over Gold possesses a core of ripe and defined fruit with tannins that are coating and very long, it will age effortlessly over 20 to 25 years.

The destemmed fruit was transferred into a small open topped fermenter. Gentle pigeage was performed twice daily with the natural ferment progressing at a cool 24 degrees. Once ferment was complete and after 24 days, free run was drained to a 2 year old extra tight grained puncheon.
