Overview

Barossa Shiraz can have many expressions; this First Release of Three Kings is an opulent and very powerful example with intense dark berry fruit and tight gripping tannin. The sophistication and elegance from vintage 2010 is evident with textural richness and a savory smokehouse character adding an extra dimension.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The density is inky black with dark violet hues and long glycerol legs clinging to the side of the glass.

Aroma

The perfume is highly concentrated with a “tar and roses” complexity. The fruit character is dark cherry and plum with sweet vanillin oak. There are dried herbs in the background lifted by heady alcohol intensity.

Palate

The opening palate is full of brooding, dark leafy herbs building slowly to reveal complex smoked meats, leather and rich fruit cake. 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 which finishes dry and long.

Food Matching

This wine is calling out for a sumptuous platter of gourmet Barossa delicacies like spicy mettwurst, garlic sausage, pickled gherkins, tasty vintage cheddar and crusty bread. It’s a wine you can sip all afternoon around a cozy open wood fire.

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

Rich, concentrated nose with hazelnut cream, chocolate and dark cherry. The palate is generous, with flavours of plum, mocha, vanilla... complex. Creamy, delicious mouthfeel on the finish.

Winery Profile

For nearly three generations the name Stockhausen has been synonymous with the production of fine wine in Australia and Hans Stockhausen wines of the Barossa are no exception. With fruit sourced from old Barossa vineyards and wines produced only if the varietal fruit parcels display outstanding characters, combined with excellent vineyard management and minimal intervention winemaking, resulting wines are limited releases masterpieces with minimal filtration or additives during winemaking.Hans Stockhausen wines take time to evolve and allow all elements to become integrated. The aging process will continue in bottle and over time this wine will develop a light bottle crust. We recommend you allow it to breathe for an hour before consuming or decant.
