Terroirs of the Barossa Ebenezer District Shiraz 2012
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

Ebenezer is located in the Northern most reaches of the Barossa and wines from this region are typically characterised by lifted aromas of lavender and spice. The palate is full of red fruits, leather, cedar and fine, talc like tannins.

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 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.

Review by: James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2015
A wine that shows 15-year-old vines can produce excellent fruit. Open-fermented, with hand-plunging and pumping over, then basket-pressed before spending 20 months in new and used American and French oak; 500 dozen bottles made. It has a velvety, medium to full-bodied palate, with an intriguing mix of savoury and dark chocolate overtones to the well of blackberry and plum fruit, the tannin and oak management well judged.
