Auswan Creek 1908 Vineyard Selection Barossa Valley Shiraz 2019


Vines dating back more than 110 years, from a renowned Barossa vineyard, this is cracking stuff. Still young, but a pleasure to enjoy now and with many years ahead of it. Deep magenta in colour, the aromas weave in and out of dark fruits, blackberries, dark chocolate, spices, coffee grinds, bay leaf notes and leather. Early complexity and that should build further over time. There is more elegance to be found in this wine than in many of its peers. Very fine tannins to be found on a lingering finish. There is a freshness here which helps lift this wine. So much to like. A good eight years and more ahead. This will prove a little more versatile with a range of dishes, than will your typical Barossa Shiraz.
