We have added the following products to your shopping cart from a previous visit:
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The Bogan block is Shiraz planted in 1899. Soils consist of mica and silt loam, followed by clay, sometimes blue in colour with gravel reefs pushing down close to the water table. In some patches on the surface perfectly round sandstone balls can be found, suggesting an ancient alluvial heritage, synonymous with a lot of vineyards along Greenock Creek. This tends to give the wine more blue fruit characters and lift combined with the intensity of the old vines.
Dense, deep garnet and dark purple color with vibrant edge. The possesses blueberry, blackberry, plum skins with mocha and spicy oak. There is a feint edge of wild herbs, such as tarragon and oregano. More savoury than normal. Tannin is quite powdery and fine, almost Nebbiolo like. Acidity is beginning to settle. Will be tannic in its youth but will continue to expand its breadth on the palate for up to ten years. I believe the tightness of fruit it's displaying in its youth will lend well to a great display of bottle age, again much like Tuscan reds
2007 was in deed a challenging year, one in which I believe demanded ruthless culling in the vineyard and cellar. In short a production was nearly halved, but the quality is solid. All the 2007 reds will require patience
"The equally deep colour has a better hue than Old Bastard; produced from estate vineyards planted in 1899 and 1965; aromas of licorice, boot polish and black fruits are followed by a distinctly savoury, spicy palate, oak and tannins playing a support role. Shiraz. "
Australian Wine Companion
"Glass-staining purple. Powerful, seductive nose offers scents of dark berry preserves, potpourri, incense and allspice. Velvety, fleshy and suave, with a compellingly smooth texture and impressive concentration without any impression of excess weight. Boasts excellent vivacity for such a rich wine. Finishes with subtle tannins and lingering notes of spice and candied flowers. These vines were reportedly planted in 1899."
International Wine Cellar
"Dark and inky, big but not gigantic, bursting with plum, cherry and white pepper flavors, hinting at cream as the spices kick in on the round, generous finish. Shiraz. Best from 2012 through 2017. 1,000 cases made."
"The 2007 Shiraz The Bogan is 100% bush vine Shiraz planted in 1899. Aromas of lavender, Asian spices, underbrush, bacon, game, and blueberry lead to a ripe, full-bodied, succulent Shiraz in need of a bit more depth. It is a solid effort lacking the richness and concentration of the top vintages. "
The Wine Advocate
"Barossa power juice. This wine pushes out of the confines of the glass, a freight train of minerals and sleek black fruit. There's substantial weight to it and stillthe wine remains firm, tightening into the finish. Oak tannins eat some of its sweetness as the flavors develop with air, hinting at red fruit scents of rhubarb and strawberry. Decant it for brisket or other slow-cooked barbeque."
