Overview

All of the grapes were fermented in small batches to retain their sub-regional characters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the wine spent 7 days on skins at 26°C. All of this encouraged maximum extraction yet retaining the dense, spicy fruit flavours which Shiraz is renowned for. After gentle pressing the wine spent 18 months in seasoned-French & American oak hogsheads. After maturation each parcel was carefully assessed for its unique role in the final blend.

Expert Reviews

The 2011 Grand Barossa Shiraz has just a touch of Cabernet Franc in the blend. Deep garnet-purple colored, it presents lovely and intense ripe black fruit and blueberry preserve notes on the nose with hints of violets, chocolate, pepper and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied and generously fruited in the mouth, it has a good backbone of medium level rounded tannins and lively acidity, finishing long. Drink it now to 2016+.
