Winemaker's Notes

2006 was an excellent vintage in the Barossa Valley and the quality shows here in this wine's balance and complex flavors."" A small percentage of Cabernet was used in the blend this year." Wood treatment was a combination of new and used American Oak for one year.""
"
The sleight of hand that mesmerizes the eye is not unlike the skill that tantalizes the palate. South Australia's Chris Ringland (Winemaker), David Hickinbotham (grape grower) and Californian Dan Philips (importer) have created this fine wine; a hard act to follow.

3 Rings is a joint venture between Dan Philips, David Hickinbotham and winemaker Chris Ringland, 100 percent Barossa from several old vine vineyards blended beautifully by Chris Ringland.

I had this wine at a restaurant in Austin, TX and couldn't quit thinking about it, so I bought a case and counted the days until it arrived. Once it was opened I couldn't have been happier. This Shiraz was everything I remembered...it pours a shade north of black and the flavors continued to improve as it opened up. It actually tasted better the next evening once it opened up fully. Very please, will be purchasing again.
