A Campbells and Rutherglen icon – showing the true power of the Rutherglen shiraz fruit with the tannin structure for longevity. For almost forty years our Bobbie Burns Shiraz has enjoyed a reputation for being of consistently high quality. Our 2009 vintage is a fine example of the style we are seeking.

Winery Tasting Notes
Complex and expressive with perfumed red berries, a subtle suggestion of ground spice, and attractive regional notes of earth and ironstone that underline the wines origins.
Typically rich fruit on entry with well ripened blood plum and mulberry characters evident. The wine continues to build weight and texture through the mid palate, with cacao and forest floor notes adding appeal. Supple fruit tannins and spicy integrated oak play a role on the back palate, drawing the wine out to a long satisfying finish.
Our intent with Bobbie Burns Shiraz is to create a wine that drinks well from release, but has the balance and structure to reward long term cellaring. Drink over the coming 8-10 years.
Slow cooked beef or lamb dishes.
