2010 Whitebox Jeff Fenech Selection Yarra Valley Shiraz

 

The 2010 growing season in the Yarra Valley proved to be excellent for most grape varieties.  Perfect weather during flowering ensured optimal crop levels. Rainfall was reasonable and fell at regular intervals, and temperatures were slightly above average. This wine was awarded silver medal at International Wine Challenge 2013 and was also awarded bronze medal at Hong Kong International WIne & Spirit Competition 2012.

 

The Jeff Fenech signature wines are small parcels chosen by Jeff that showcase what he truly loves about Whitebox red wines – intensity, purity, elegance and balance. The 2010 Yarra Valley Shiraz is purple-red in colour, with intense aromas of berries and spice. The palate shows a harmonious blend of rich fruit and French oak, leading into a lingering aftertaste underpinned by soft, approachable tannins - an elegant and satisfying wine.

 

The fruit for this wine was sourced from our family-owned vineyards in the renowned Yarra Valley. Shiraz from each vineyard block was fermented separately in traditional open fermenters, and given varying levels of maceration to enhance complexity and give a wide array of flavours and textures to the final blend.  Malo-lactic fermentation and maturation in new and old French oak and temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for periods varying from six to eighteen months (dependent on wine structure) followed, prior to assemblage of the finished wine.

 

Whitebox wines are fashioned with respect to terroir and tradition. Drinking well now, this wine will continue to develop in the bottle for many years to come.

 

The combination of fruit intensity and completely ripe tannins makes this wine extremely versatile as a food match. We recommend serving it with dishes featuring beef, lamb or pork, however, it is equally at home with a cheese and fruit platter.
