Terroirs of The Barossa Lyndoch Shiraz 2006
Sold Out
Tasting Notes
It is full of the luscious varietal qualities of leather,earth, pepper and wild blackberry. The flavours are strong and full with firmtannins and a long and lingering finish. We recommend cellaring for 10 years.
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 15 months has resulted in a wine of great structure and finesse.

'It's a blockbuster..'
Review by: Franz Scheurer, Australian Gourmet Pages
It is full of the luscious varietal qualities of leather, earth, pepper and wild blackberry. The flavours are strong and full with firm tannins and a long and lingering finish. At 15% it’s a blockbuster and I find it quite fruit-forward. It is best enjoyed with some char-grilled steak or good, Lyonnais sausages.
'They're top notch wines'...
Review by: Kerry Skinner, Illawarra Mercury
Three Shiraz vintages, three different Barossa vineyard profiles (Greenock, Ebenezer and the Lyndoch), three very different wines and all released at the same time. Crafted by Tim Smith they’re top-notch wines that offer an opportunity to explore different Barossa Styles. Highly recommended. Drink with : Kangaroo fillet.

Review by: Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
The baby of the family coming off 15 year old vines, but if it’s a baby, then it’s baby Huey! Whopping wine full of blackberry, plum and dark chocolate with wafts of mint. It’s full bodied and clean with sweet warm alcohol and some spicy dark boiled fruitcake characters. Very fine dense tannins and excellent length of flavour - although it closes warm to hot. It’s a big hearty big hearted Barossa wine, and if you’re in the mood, then so is the wine. Tasted : Oct08 Closure : Cork Drink : 2008 - 2016

Very lively on the nose, lifted and inviting - a full-on nasal experience, but the flavours tended to coat the palate and it was heavy in the mouth.

While elements of prune, plum and dark chocolate are obvious, manages to partially carry its alcohol load; tannins help to counter the heat which might have otherwise marred the finish. Cork. 16° alc. DRINK 2016
