First Creek Botanica Shiraz 2019 13.5% 750ml
Vinification: Fruit was at optimum ripeness and fermented in open fermenters and then matured in older, large format French oak barrels. Minimal winemaking intervention, combined with larger casks, highlights pure fruit characters without letting oak dominate.
Cellaring Potential: Cellaring potential is up to five years.
