Very, very Small Berry Shiraz due to no winter rains and a hot dry growing season led to only 2.2 tonne from a 4 acre hilltop block of rocky blue limestone on February 21st 2019.

 

Flavour ripe and good acidity, I made this wine in the same method as the shiraz above, but instead matured it in bone dry, shaved out AP John American Oak for 28 months.

 

This deep dark red offers luscious blackberry/mulberry conserve with a dense dark full palate. The barberry fruit bursts into the whole palate ending in a sweet ‘Bounty’ coconut oak which lingers for more than a minute. Rich luscious exceptional length.

 

This is the kind of Barossa Shiraz I fell in love with in 1992. Only share this balanced beast with your best friends over the next 20 years.
