The Wanderer Shiraz 2008

Andrew Marks, the man behind The Wanderer wines, spent three years as a winemaker in the ‘white wine’ section of Penfolds, and he recently said that “in some ways I still make reds as a white winemaker would”. Not 100 percent sure what he means, but I like the sound of it.

This Wanderer Shiraz was wild yeast fermented and aged in puncheons – only 20 percent of the oak new. A small amount of whole bunches were included during fermentation.
