Barossa Tower Shiraz 2015
Tasting Notes

Lifted aromas of blackberry, plum and black pepper accompanied by spicy, dark berry fruits on the palate. The finish is long with fine-grained tannins  from  maturation  in both new and seasoned American and French oak barrels. Although drinking well now this wine may be cellared for up to five years from vintage.

Winemaking

The grapes were traditionally fermented in a combination of open and static fermenters. Pumping over and plunging techniques were used to extract the rich, soft tannins and vibrant colour from the skins.

The wine was matured in a combination of French and American oak barrels for up to 15 months prior to blending.

Super value. The wine's extraction regime, diplomatically attuned to the ripe fruit of the region, serves to accent the grape's typicity more than lofty interpretations so often driven by longer maceration periods and ambitious oak. Smoked meat, cracked pepper and a core of juicy dark fruits expand and reverberate from nose to fully toned palate
