Shiraz is a very versatile grape variety that can be made in a vast range of styles. On Mischa Estate, we strive to create a delicate flavoured yet full bodied Shiraz that is as formidable to drink as it is alluring with its flavours and aromas. Violets and elegant flavours is what we search for, rather than spicy and savoury flavours.
We harvest our Shiraz 2019 from an old vineyard. Most importantly, this particular vineyard produces a very limited crop with a more delicate fruit. Therefore, Mischa Estate produces a Shiraz that competes at the highest level. At Mischa we use French and American oak to mature our Shiraz. However, not so much as to extract too many wood flavours. As a result, we allow the fruit to to speak for itself in this excellent, award-winning wine.
