Barossa Boy Double Trouble Shiraz Cabernet 2020


A blend of 55% Shiraz and 45% Cabernet, it is matured in a mix of French and American oak for two years. Deep maroon in colour, this offers an alluring nose of choc/cherry, with blackfruits, smoky notes, mocha, coffee beans, soy and sarsaparilla. There is a gorgeous plushness and ripeness. This is Barossa to its bootstraps (the Cabernet does hail from the neighbouring Eden Valley, but we are looking at the big picture). Absolutely delicious with satiny tannins and such a compelling texture, this is lingering and yet balanced. Really cracking value and good now, but expect it to continue to provide pleasure over the next decade.
