THE FINER DETAILS
This is a typically opulent Barossa Valley Shiraz wine with rich ripe chocolate and raisin aromas, strongly earthy vanilla overtones and subtle spice. The palate is full bodied with lovely oak characters. There is loads of spicy berry flavour and also good acidity and length, producing a pleasing savoury character on the finish; an added element of complexity that is unusual for the region. This wine will age well for 20 years or more.Download Tasting Notes
The fruit for this wine was hand harvested in late March in what was an exceptional vintage in the Barossa.
The juice was fermented in open and overhead fermenters for 10 days before being transferred into oak hogsheads (300L) for ageing for two years. The expert use of flavoursome American and German oak to add structure and complement the rich fruit and spice flavours has produced a powerful wine that will age beautifully over the longer term.
