The Grand Barossa Shiraz is full of dense, lifted aromas of red berry fruit. The palate is soft and supple yet elegant with plenty of upfront fruit flavour and length. Hints of spice, pepper and vanilla oak are all delicately interwoven into the wine. Beautifully balanced tannins derived from eighteen months in American & French oak complement the luscious fruit and give the wine added complexity and structure.
"eep garnet colored, the 2007 Grand Barossa Shiraz is composed of 95% Shiraz and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache. Blackberry cordial and kirsch scented with underlying notes of marmite and dark roasted coffee beans, this full-bodied style has plenty of juicy fruit in the mouth supported by a medium-firm level of very fine tannins and crisp acid. There's a bit of cedar and vanilla standing out in the long finish. Drink this one now to 2014."
The Wine Advocate
"Dark red; has a mix of the savoury characters of '07, dark chocolate, plum and prune on bouquet and palate alike."
