Arila Gardens Shiraz Ironstone and Quartz Gardens 2022


From the Moppa sub-region, this release might possibly top the spectacular 2021, it is a cracker. From a single vineyard, planted in 1940, this is classic Barossa. Dark magenta in colour, this is a balanced style of Shiraz. The nose gives us a swirling array of aromas, with mocha, coffee beans, cassis, black fruits and chocolate. Barossa to the bone with a gorgeous plushness, the wine is balanced, generous and offers good extraction. A very long finish, with silky tannins. Enjoy for at least ten to twelve years. A cracking Shiraz.
