Grand Barossa Shiraz 2017
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 basket pressed before spending up to 18 months in a combination new and seasoned French and American oak barrels in our cellars.

Deep red/purple colour and a herby, humus-tinged bouquet, which suggests some Eden Valley fruit in the mix. It’s intense and full-bodied, penetrating and brightly youthful, with abundant tannins which are supple but persuasive. A hint of licorice. An excellent young shiraz. Drink 2018-2027

Vibrant and lifted with bright plummy red fruits and delicate earthy notes. The palate has a core of juicy fruit and a clean lick of bright acid to balance the flavour. Seamless.
