Located 20 minutes from the heart of Nashik city, York’s state of the art winery presents a breathtaking view of the tranquil expanse of the Gangapur dam backwaters. York employs modern viticulture practices and management techniques for growing, pruning and spraying to ensure that the fruit harvested is of the best quality. The combination of modern Australian and South African winemaking practices combined with old-world French influences is an open-minded approach.
VITICULTURE + VINIFICATION
The vines for the 40% Shiraz, 60% Cabernet Sauvignon blend are grown on light red soil with medium clay content and the vines benefit from Y structure trellissing. Grapes were handpicked once they achieved 23-23.5 Brix and fermented separately in tank for 18-22 days for maximum flavour and tannin extraction. New and used toasted French oak barrels were carefully paired to each varietal for 13-14 months maturation with no fining and minimal sheet filtration at 2 microns before bottling.
Lifted aromas of jammy, sweet vanilla and Christmas cake characters with nuances of nutmeg, cloves, blackcurrant and coffee. The barrel ageing lends good structure and finesse to the
lingering mouth-feel with a palate of cranberry, peppery caramel, dark chocolate and a hint of tobacco
