'Terroirs of the Barossa' Ebenezer District Shiraz 2016
Tasting Notes

Shiraz wines from this region are typically characterised by lifted aromas of lavender and spice.The palate is full of red fruits, leather, cedar and fine, talc like tannins.

Winemaking

To ensure the unique character of this sub region is exemplified in the wine, small open fermenters and our basket press were employed to gently extract the wine.

Aging in the finest quality oak and selection of the truest barrels has created a wine that respects and expresses its place of origin.

From the northern district of Ebenezer, home to some of the greatest vineyards in Australia known for their great ageability and soft tannins.

The Terroirs series are all fermented in used French and American puncheons. This deeply coloured, rich and complex wine fills the senses with its array of red and blue fruits, spice and chocolate, yet retains a core of elegance and balance. 15% alcohol is simply a number, not a course of heat. A very good outcome for the vintage. Drink by 2031

Deep, dark red colour with a good purple tint. The bouquet is savoury and earthy and slightly smoky, with a faint floral lift suggesting very ripe grapes. The tannins are graphite-like and drying on the middle and back-palates, with a very dry, sandpaper tannin aftertaste. Very good intensity and structure, long and satisfying. A ripping wine and a keeper. 11/4/2018 Drink 2018 to 2040

Has that Barossa charm. Ripe cherry, ripe berries, really sweet-ripe sense from first sniff, with whiffs of cherry cola and raspberry jelly. Palate is pretty similar but mercifully subdued with peppery spice, some chewy tannins, cool acidity – a better show in terms of balance to taste. It’s a lush, slurpy red that should win fans for its overt, bold nature.
