Heritage Label Old Vine Shiraz 2012
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

The resulting Shiraz is full of soft, dark cherry fruit with rich notes of dark chocolate and subtle oak. The palate is textured and layered, with the dark berry fruit aromas again coming to the fore. The palate has a long plush, elegant finish.

 

Winemaking

All of the grapes were fermented separately at the winery in small 3 tonne fermenters. 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 28° C. Further maturation in a mixture of French and American oak for 18 months has resulted in a wine of great structure and finesse.

For our Old Vine Shiraz we selected grapes from the Hage and Gobell families’ vineyards in Nuriootpa and Stonewell sub-regions respectively.

Review by: James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2015
Produced from three vineyards in three districts of the Barossa Valley, the vines with an average age of 50 years. It is a distinguished full-bodied wine from a great vintage, with both depth and length to its parade of blackberry, licorice and confit plum fruit.
