Love Over Gold Mengler’s Hill Shiraz 2015

Love Over Gold Mengler’s Hill Shiraz 2015

$299.00

Love Over Gold’s second vintage is its 2015 Shiraz, hand-destemmed and aged in a single three-year-old puncheon from Sylvain. Hints of pencil shavings and dried herbs mark the huge cherry and blackberry fruit on the nose, then blend in savory notes of roasted meat, mocha and black olives on the full-bodied palate. It’s lush and lithe, with fine-grained tannins that turn silky on the lengthy finish. Impressive!

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.
