From the Barossa Valley, the Misura 800 can be described as near perfect. Misura, meaning ‘measurement’ reflects the precise methods used in the process from vine to bottle to produce this great wine. Hand-picked from selected A-grade vineyards with low yielding Shiraz vines in South Australia, this wine is fermented in new American and French Oak barrels for a period of 18 months. A second term of oak maturation of up to 6 months in two year old oak is used to finely balance the rich fruits and great depth of this wine. To ensure further quality control whilst in bottle, it is carefully cellared under optimum wine conditions before being hand wrapped and laid down to mature in its hand crafted wooden box. The Misura 800 will develop further complexity and softness for up to 15 years. Best paired with slow cooked brisket.
Selected from the family single vineyards in the cool-climate and rich soils of the Adelaide Hills, this
Reserve range of wines is able to highlight its diversity through its infusion of intense aroma, fruit
flavors and complexity into the wine. Each individual wine is nurtured which results in pure soil, pure
environment and pure excellence. With an average aging in new oak for 18 months minimum, these
wines will cellar for over 15 years. See more from our Reserve Range here.
