Nick Glaetzer has elevated Tasmanian wine to a new level with the release of the La Judith Shiraz. An extraordinary single vineyard parcel of fruit was selected to create this wine in homage to Nick's late mother Judith Glaetzer. Single vineyard Coal River Valley fruit was harvested on 13th May 2013. Yield 20hl/ha (Hermitage AOC stipulates 40 hl/ha). 10% whole-bunch with 20% stems returned to must after destemming. Cold soak for 5 days followed by inoculated ferment. 6 weeks total on skins before pressing to 100% new French barriques from Crozes-Hermitage cooperage. 34 months in barrel on full malolactic lees. Bottled unfined and unfiltered on the 24th February 24 2016. Only 583 bottles produced.
