Auswan Creek 1908 Limited Selection Barossa Valley Shiraz 2019


The grapes for this gorgeous Barossa Shiraz are sourced from vines in excess of 110 years of age. They are hand harvested before whole bunch fermentation and then basket pressed into oak barrels. This is opaque maroon in colour. It is an absolutely quintessential Barossa Shiraz so if you are in any doubt as to whether that is a wine style for you, try this. Very hard not to love it, but if by chance, it does not appeal, then Barossa Shiraz is not for you. Cuddly, plush, soft and attractive. The flavours are a mix of coffee bean, mocha, vanilla and chocolate. Terrific length here, with the wine remains soft and luxurious for the full journey, carrying that sweet core of chocolate. Abundant tannins here, but they are cashmere soft and velvety. This has a decade plus ahead of it.
