Terroirs of The Barossa Lyndoch Shiraz 2008
Sold Out
Tasting Notes
From a vineyard in the southern end of the Barossa, this 2008 Shiraz is full of soft, dark cherry fruit with rich kirsch like notes, dark chocolate and spicy oak. The palate is textured and layered, with the dark berry fruit aromas again coming to the fore. The palate has a long finish, complimented by defining oak 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.

Black fruit, dark chocolate licorice bullets, a pleasant level of mintiness and nutty oak. It’s smooth and thickly textured, full bodied and savoury, yet fruit sweet and flooded with flavour. love the unobtrusive acidity and the malt biscuit aftertaste. It’s a seductive wine and typically Southern Barossan - plenty of flesh and satisfaction on offer here.

Intense opaque brick red colour. Lovely aromatics waft from the glass, perfumed blue flowers, framboise, spiced plums, cocoa beans, and soy. The palate is very tightly structured, taut with promise and power for the future. This will be awesome but will need some patience to allow the potential to get up to full throttle.
