The Château Single Vineyard ‘Bethanian’ Shiraz 2022

$40.00 / bottle

The Château Single Vineyard ‘Bethanian’ Shiraz 2022

From our estate vineyard on the sandy loam soils on Bethany creek. Settled by German immigrants in the 1840s, Bethany, or ‘Bethanian’ as the locals called it is the oldest settlement in the Barossa. Lifted aromas of blackberry, blueberry and black pepper are supported by spicy, dark berry fruits on the palate.

The extensive finish is framed by elegant, fine-grained tannins from maturation in a combination of new and seasoned American and French oak.

Ray Jordan, Wine Pilot

A deep, concentrated and immensely opulent shiraz that comes from the distinctive Bethany Village, in the heart of the Barossa, Dense blackberry and dark plum on the nose with a lick of dark chocolate. Smooth and slightly earthy palate with a smooth understated tannin influence.
