Grand Barossa Shiraz 2012
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

Grand Barossa Shiraz epitomises the premium international reputation for Shiraz which has made the Barossa Valley famous.

Lifted aromas of blackberry, plum and black pepper are accompanied by spicy, dark berry fruits on the palate.

Winemaking

All of the grapes are fermented in small batches to retain their sub-regional characters. After destemming, the wine ferments for 7 days on skins at 26°C in small open fermenters and is hand plunged twice daily.

All of this encourages maximum extraction yet retaining the dense, spicy fruit flavours which Shiraz is renowned for.

It is then gently basket pressed, before going to barrel to spend 18 months in seasoned-French & American oak hogsheads.

RRP: $25

A more traditional style of Barossa shiraz that will keep fans of these styles more than happy. Dark and red plums, macerated cherries, baking spices, earth, liquorice and roasting meats all appear of the nose and palate. Plenty of weight and texture to this too, which does also retain a sense of freshness and a bright seam of acidity, driving the wine along to a medium-length finish that resonates with ripe berry fruits and gentle oak. Drink in 2017. 90/100
