Terroirs of The Barossa Lyndoch Shiraz 2010
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

From a vineyard in the southern end of the Barossa, this 2009 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.

If you can have a pigeon trio, the Terroirs of the Barossa shirazs are that, the similarities between them far more evident than the dissimilarities. That said, this wine is more savoury, with hints of bramble and earth; curiously, this doesn't work the way one would expect, but that's wine.

Deep purple black color, the 2010 Terroirs of the Barossa Lyndoch Shiraz is scented of cremede cassis, dark chocolate and licorice with nuances of salami, dried mulberries and underbrush. Very full bodied and concentrated on the palate, it is opulently fruited with berry preserve and savory flavors supported by a medium level of grainy tannins and crisp acid, finishing long. Drink it now to 2020+.  Importer: Banfi Vintners, Old Brookville, NY www.banfivintners.com
