Nova Vita Art Series Reserve Shiraz 2013
THE VINTAGE：The 2013 growing season was an excellent growing season well suited to the production of elegant but rich Shiraz. Budburst was within 7 days of the average throughout the Hills and the season opened with little frost and warm spring days enhancing shoot growth. Moderate temperatures right up to ripening allowed for enhanced flavour development and relatively stress free picking.
THE WINE：The 2013 Reserve Shiraz (Barrel Select) is made to be an elegant but rich wine with enough structure and fruit intensity that it will cellar well and develop complex secondary characters. It has the finesse and delicacy that the cooler parts of the Hills produce as well as some of the riper characters produced in the warmer northern sites. Drink it now or reward yourself by cellaring it for 20 – 30 years.
APPELLATION：Adelaide Hills, Australia
MACERATION：21 to 25 days average
