Terroirs of The Barossa Greenock Shiraz 2013
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

The dark, brooding regional characters of plum, red cherry and liquorice are all to the fore of this wine.

The palate is focused and linear, with dark bitter chocolate notes and an elegant long persistent finish. We recommend cellaring for 10 years.

Winemaking

The individual parcel is destemmed and before going into small stainless steel open fermenters. Fermentation takes place over 7 days on skins at 28° C in the open fermenters with hand plunging and pumpover twice per day.The wine is gently basket pressed and moved to barrel for malolactic fermentation. 

It then undertakes further maturation in a mixture of French and American Oak for 18 months which results in a wine of great structure and finesse. Unfined and unfiltered.

From the 40yo Mattschoss Vineyard, and vinified in the standard Chateau Tanunda fashion for its single vineyard wines. Black fruits, a touch of bitter chocolate and rippling, soft tannins all stake their claims immediately the wine is tasted; oak, too, has made a positive contribution. Drink By:2035

Medium to deep garnet-purple, the 2013 Terroirs of the Barossa Greenock Shiraz has a textbook chocolate box, licorice and minted blackberry nose with suggestions of fertile loam and tar. Full-bodied, rich and seductive on the palate, it offers layers of black fruits and exotic spices framed by firm yet velvety tannins and lively acid, finishing with great length. 2015 - 2025
