Grand Barossa Shiraz 2016
Sold Out
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

All of the grapes are fermented in small batches to retain their sub-regional characters. After destemming, the wine ferments for 7 days on skins at 26°C in small open fermenters and is hand plunged twice daily.

This encourages maximum extraction yet retaining the dense, spicy fruit flavours which Shiraz is renowned for.

The wine is gently pressed before spending up to 18 months in a combination new and seasoned French and American oak barrels in our cellars.

Deep, dense purple/red colour. The bouquet is plummy and faintly smoky, the palate intense and lively with vitality and energy. Good intensity of flavour, refreshing and yet full-bodied. The tannins are mild and supple. Drink 2017 -2029

You'd be happy with a couple of glasses of this at a barbecue and share it around because it's keenly priced and has plenty of Barossa goodness. Leads with plums, pepper and spice plus charcuterie and the fuller bodied palate is a little unforgiving in a youthful way, super bright acidity with raspy, firm tannins and a bit of kick on the finish. Drink By 2025.
