The Château 'Bethanian' Shiraz 2011
Sold Out
Tasting Notes

Lifted aromas of blackberry, blueberry and black pepper supported by spicy, dark berry fruits on the palate. The extensive finish is framed by elegant, fine-grained from eighteen months’ maturation in a combination of new and seasoned American and French oak barriques and hogsheads.

From two blocks on the Bethany Estate vineyard, separately picked and open-fermented. It is full-bodied, and flush with blackberry and plum fruit; the same potpourri of barriques and hogsheads of new and used American and French oak is accompanied by chewy tannins. Needs more time, but will get there as the tannins soften.
