Winemaker's Notes

Number 51 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

The Barossa is Shiraz paradise. Wide daily temperature ranges thicken grape skins to develop wine colour and structure. Warm summer temperatures develop maximum ripeness, and low rainfall ensures juice concentration. Since the first Barossa vines were planted in 1847, a tradition of specialised pruning and minimal irrigation has forged the Barossa's reputation as a place where quality takes precedence over quantity. The screwcap closure is used to ensure freshness and preserve the characters of the wine and eliminate the possibility of cork taint.

This Shiraz is vibrant deep red in color with purple hues. The aromas exhibit blueberries, blackberries and dark plums overlaid with anise and smoky oak. Full, round and soft, this wine shows excellent depth across palate balanced by good acidity and fine long tannins.

Pair this Shiraz with slow roasted lamb shanks with tomato relish and creamy pepper mashed potatoes. Also good with red meats and anything barbequed.

"Shows distinctive Barossa style, with a touch of alcoholic warmth to the super ripe blackberry liqueur flavors. Ample oak imparts toast, vanilla, mint and chocolate complexity. It's a big, full-bodied wine, but because of its ripeness is approachable now."
-Wine Enthusiast
