The Château Bethanian Shiraz 2015
Tasting Notes

Lifted aromas of blackberry, blueberry and black pepper supported by spicy, dark berry fruits on the palate. The extensive finish is framed by elegant, fine-grained tannins from maturation in a combination of new and seasoned American and French oak.

Winemaking

The grapes are carefully destemmed and spend seven days on their skins prior to fermentation in open fermenters to gently extract colour, flavours and tannins. 

One single pressing of the grapes in a basket press and maturation in a combination of French and American oak barrels results in a sumptuous wine of dark fruits of the forest supported by a hint of spice and fine grained tannins on the long lasting finish. 

Vinification

The grapes for the Bethanian Shiraz are grown on the sandy loam soils in the Bethany sub-region of the Barossa Valley.
