Overview

This is the definitive “Barossa Shiraz” big, strong and bold – with classic Shiraz characters typical of the lower yielding hard, red clay soils and exposed sites in Lyndoch where these grapes were sourced.

The grapes were destalked (separating berries from the bunch) and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel open fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 7 days on skins at 28° C. Further maturation in a mixture of French and American Oak for 18 months has resulted in a wine of great structure and finesse.

Expert Reviews

If you can have a pigeon trio, the Terroirs of the Barossa shirazs are that, the similarities between them far more evident than the dissimilarities. That said, this wine is more savoury, with hints of bramble and earth; curiously, this doesn't work the way one would expect, but that's wine. Rating 94 - Drink by 2030 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2012)

Deep purple black color, the 2010 Terroirs of the Barossa Lyndoch Shiraz is scented of creme de cassis, dark chocolate and licorice with nuances of salami, dried mulberries and underbrush. Very full bodied and concentrated on the palate, it is opulently fruited with berry preserve and savory flavors supported by a medium level of grainy tannins and crisp acid, finishing long. Drink it now to 2020+. Rating 91 - Drink to 2020 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (FEB/2013)
