Terroirs of The Barossa Lyndoch Shiraz 2013
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

Lyndoch, in the Southern Valley, is renowned for its brown, gravelly volcanic soils at around 200 metres’ elevation, giving wines rich in dark berry fruits, chocolate and spice. The palate is textured and layered, with the berry fruit aromas coming to the fore, and it has a long finish, complemented by defining oak tannins

Winemaking

The grapes are destemmed but not crushed. Fermentation takes place in small stainless steel open fermenters adapted to the size of individual vineyard parcels. Careful hand plunging takes place twice daily. Optimum temperatures are sustained over the course of fermentation to ensure the true expression of the terroir; rich flavours, colour and aromas are drawn out. 

The wine is gently basket pressed in individual vineyard parcels over the course of several hours. Our vertical basket press combines state of the art technology with traditional winemaking. 

18 months maturation in the finest French and American Oak results in a wine of great structure and finesse.

The grapes were destemmed, not crushed, open-fermented, basket-pressed, matured for 20 months in new and used American and French oak. Deeply coloured; this is a rock of ages, the large body of black fruits within the walls of a fortress of savoury tannins. Drink By:2043

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Terroirs of the Barossa Lyndoch Shiraz gives a beautiful nose of crushed wild blueberries, plum preserves, violets and cassis over suggestions of aniseed, espresso and beef drippings. Big, concentrated and packed with flavors, it has lovely ripe, rounded tannins and just enough freshness to lift the long balanced finish.  2015 - 2025
