Grand Barossa Shiraz 2018
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 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 of new and seasoned French and American oak barrels in our cellars.

Youthfully charming and immediately appealing, the wine shows blackberry, Black Doris plum, violet, dark chocolate and toasted almond characters on the nose, leading to a gorgeously weighted palate that’s succulent and lingering. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and roundness, making it highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2034.
