Grand Barossa Shiraz 2009
Tasting Notes
Grand Barossa Shiraz epitomises the premium international reputation for Shiraz which has made the Barossa Valley famous. Lifted aromas of blackberry, plum and black pepper are accompanied by spicy, dark berry fruits on the palate.
Winemaking

The grapes were destalked (separating berries from the bunch) and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel open fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 7 days on skins at 26° C. All of this encouraged maximum extraction yet retaining the dense, spicy fruit flavours which Shiraz is renowned for. The skins were gently pressed in the JLB Bucher Vaslin press and the wine spent 18 months in French & American oak hogsheads.
