Grand Barossa Shiraz 2007
Sold Out
Tasting Notes
Grand Barossa Shiraz epitomises the premium international reputation for Shiraz which has made the Barossa Valley famous. An intense and complex wine with berry fruit aromas, mild spicy notes combined with well integrated vanilla oak flavours. The typical restrained ‘Chateauness’ is our cellar style of earthiness and genuiness with long lingering flavours.
Winemaking

The grapes were destalked (separating berries from the bunch) and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel open fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 7 days on skins at 26° C. All of this encouraged maximum extraction yet retaining the dense, spicy fruit flavours which Shiraz is renowned for. The skins were gently pressed in the JLB Vaslin Bucher press and the wine spent 18 months in French & American oak hogsheads.

Dark red; has a mix of the savoury characters of '07, dark chocolate, plum and prune on bouquet and palate alike.
