This particular Barossa Valley Shiraz style is what the Barossa is now world famous for ,it is robust and full-bodied with a firm yet fine tannin finish and typically represents the style winemakers strive to achieve as typical of the best for each vintage.
This wine was made in partnership with Nick Badrice, Chief Winemaker at the Dorrien Estate winery.
Intense, attractive deep ruby purple.
Rich plum, complex mocha – chocolate and spicy fruit with integrated light vanillin oak and a hint of anise, are all subtly combined.
The nose shows great depth and concentration of fruit and the benefit of extended maturation pre-release.
Round, soft and full flavoured with lengthy fine grain tannins. Flavours of fruity spice, coffee, chocolate and blackberry carry through onto the lengthy and persistent palate.
This wine has seen extended maturation, with concentrated fruit and firm fine grain tannin it has been designed to drink well
on release but age gracefully. With careful cellaring the wine will become more complex and soften further it will
begin to show its best in 2-3 years reaching its full potential in about 5 -10 years.
