Paterson's Gundagai Vineyard Shiraz 2017
Grape growers like to talk about vine clones. While it seems obscure to an outsider, clonal selection influences wine flavour. This wine, writes Stuart Paterson, ‘… is made from two of the best clones (PT23 and BVCR12) planted in our vineyard’. The first, says Stuart, contributes deep colour and flavour and the second adds complex, spicy aromas. The wine shows vibrant, youthful colours, medium body, deep, rich berry and spice flavours, soft tannins and a complimentary touch of charry oak.
