Cool Woods wines are made to be enjoyed with friends and family – the wines are sourced from our own cool climate vineyards, and supplemented with fruit from other well-known South Australian grapegrowing regions. South Australia produces many of Australia’s most respected examples of Shiraz and regions such as the Barossa are world famous for the Shiraz produced. Cool Woods Shiraz combines fruit from several regions around South Australia and uses subtle oak maturation to create a well-balanced fruit-driven style of wine that can be paired well with food, or simply conversation and a few laughs. The nose is lifted berry fruits, with hints of dark chocolate and spice. The palate is medium bodied with intense plummy fruit. This plummy fruit fills the whole palate and combined with the soft and approachable tannins creates a very mouth filling wine. The length of flavour is long with plumy and liquorice fruit and spicy oak.
The grapes are crushed and de-stemmed into open fermenters. Yeast is added immediately once in fermenter, and the ferments are pumped over twice daily to maximise colour, tannin and flavour extraction. Cooling is used to ensure ferments remain in the 22-25 degrees celcius range which will allow the fruit to display maximum fruit expression.
Pressing then occurs approximately seven days after crushing. A small amount of French oak is used to increase complexity. The wine is bottled young to retain the intense upfront fruit characters.
