"A Rutherglen icon – showing the true power of the Rutherglen shiraz fruit with the tannin structure for longevity. For more than forty years our Bobbie Burns Shiraz has enjoyed a reputation for being of consistently high quality. This 42nd vintage is a fine example of the style we seek for our Bobbie Burns Shiraz" Colin Campbell
- VIC - Rutherglen
Medium red-purple, good for the vintage; attractive plum and black cherry fruit; while only light- to medium-bodied, it has a smooth and flavoursome palate, and very good length. Cool, wet vintages are not necessarily a death knell. Rating 92 - Drink by 2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2013)
Winery Tasting Notes
Medium red with purple hues.
Lifted red plum and mulberry fruit integrated with aromas of ground spice and black pepper fine cedary oak sits in the background.
Medium bodied and complex with plum, dark cherry and mulberry fruit with earth and pepper. Acidity adds freshness and structure to the mid palate with fine grained earthy tannins adding elegance and length.
Enjoy now with a Moroccan spice rubbed fillet of beef or over time with slow braised beef cheeks.
Whilst the 2011 Bobbie Burns Shiraz is drinking beautifully on release, our long history with this wine suggests it will continue to develop in the bottle for a further 10-12 years.
