Over the Top is Pertaringa's flagship Shiraz. Acknowledging the very best site, climate, vines and production techniques, this Shiraz is named 'Over the Top' to proudly declare the aim to make the finest wine they possibly can. The 2001 Over the Top are the best barrels of the old vine Shiraz fruit hand selected from the five decade old vineyard. Made by winemaker Mr Ben Riggs and aged in the best French Oak.
Superb lifted nose, with top notes of vanilla, dark chocolate and spice, followed by a black pepper end note. Powerful, mouthfilling flavour, liquorice, spice, black pepper explode and persist very long onto the aftertaste. Firmish, but dry tannins, followed by a strong mocha and black pepper aftertaste.
