This is a stunning expression of prestige Barossa Shiraz from master blender and winemaker Peter Jorgensen. It’s opulent and powerful, like the 2009, but reflects the sophistication and elegance from the 2010 vintage. The textural richness adds an extra dimension to the rugged Barossa experience.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour is opaque purplish black with dark crimson hues and long glycerol legs clinging to the side of the glass.

Aroma

The perfume is highly concentrated but refined and long. Blackberry and plum fruit combine with sweet vanillin oak, coconut and dried herbs with a rich estery lift of heady alcohol and peppery spice.

Palate

The opening palate is full of luscious ripe berries and builds slowly to reveal complex smoked meats, leather and rich dark chocolate. The tannin structure is firm and gripping with heightened acid lift filling the mid palate and carrying the oak and sumptuous brandy soaked fruits to the back palate.

Food Matching

In 3 – 5 years this Shiraz will mellow and blossom into a truly elegant and sophisticated statement of Barossa character fitting of a grand banquet. In the short term its flavours are bold and dominating and are best enjoyed with a gourmet platter of rustic country delicacies … chunky slices of spicy mettwurst, pickled gherkins, tasty vintage cheddar and crusty bread.

Cellaring Potential

This is a very powerful wine and whilst still showing some of the rugged characteristics of youth, it clearly has a sophisticated pedigree and will develop beautifully with age. It needs plenty of breathing after opening and would benefit from decanting. The screw cap closure will prevent any risk of cork taint but it will need cool dark conditions for extended cellaring. It’s a wine that will comfortably survive till the next generation.

Grays Tasting Panel Review

Complex flavours of milk chocolate, raspberry, clove, cinnamon are mingled on the nose and palate. The grippy young tannin giving an excellent structure. Lingering delicious, long finish. Beautiful.

Winery Profile

The “Premium Reserve” label is allocated to only the most outstanding wines. Peter Jorgensen hand selects truly premium, benchmark wines with rich fruit intensity, complex flavours and structure combined with their long term aging ability. All Premium Reserve wines are an expression of excellent vineyard management and winemaking. The resulting wines are extremely limited and are treated with minimal filtration and additives which result in great length and balance. They are wines that take time to evolve and are given extended cellar maturation to allow all elements to become integrated before bottling. The aging process will continue in bottle and each wine will develop a light crust over time. Please allow this wine to breathe for at least 30 minutes prior to consuming.
