Oscar Semmler is a special selection of Shiraz from our vineyard planted in 1976. The grapes are harvested at optimum maturity and the must fermented warm for 6 days before transferring to New and older French Oak Hogsheads and Barriques to complete fermentation.
The wine is then matured for 24 months maturation. Only the most outstanding barrels are chosen for the bottling blend. Just 300 dozen bottles of the 1999 Oscar Semmler Shiraz were produced.
Again, as with the 98 Oscar the 99 has big full flavours of plum and red berry fruit and also shows a sweet fruit mid palate concentration. The oak characters support this fruit and the wine finishes with big, but soft drying tannin.
