Winemaker's Notes

Our finest Barossa Valley Shiraz cuvee, The Barossa ‘R' Reserve, was blended in equal parts from both our estate owned, Crowhurst and Greens Vineyards. Tiny yielding parcels of old vine Shiraz were hand picked, traditionally vinified and then matured for 30 months in small 100% new French oak casks creating a wine of great varietal strength, poise and ageing potential.

Appearance: Deep brick red with crimson tints.

Nose: Tremendous power and complexity, the nose defines the best of the Shiraz variety, ripe fruit and oak integration.

Palate: Full flavoured, densely textured and strongly varietal, the ‘R' Shiraz has a palate that combines rich plum fruit, spicy oak handling and fine tannins to create a wine that is both complex and rewarding with a long persistent finish. Ageing potential of at least 15 years.
