About: The only 2015 Lock & Key Shiraz was released in this 187ml size bottle.
Viticulture: The 2015 was an exceptional Shiraz vintage. Our flagship wine Escalier won the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge and our Estate Shiraz was named Hilltops Wine of the Year.
Wine making: The fruit was cold soaked for 5 days before being inoculated in open fermenters. The wine was fermented gradually over 12 days thenmatured in a combination of French Hogsheads and Stainless Steel for 12 months.
Tasting Notes: The fragrant nose leads on to an equally vibrant medium weight palate, featuring raspberries & plums with five spice complexity. The flavours are elegantly entwined with the refined, supple tannins providing excellent drinkability.
