Barossa Boy Lifeblood Shiraz 2018
This is Trent Burge’s prestige wine, a tribute to Barossa Shiraz. In other words, his best of the best and what a vintage for it. 2018 is a brilliant year for the Barossa. Near totally opaque, there is real intensity here, concentration and power. The nose offers notes of blackcurrants, cassis, mocha, warm earth, chocolate, black olives and leather. Big and bold with seemingly endless power, but this wine is also supple and fresh. There are silky tannins too and a very long finish. Drink for fifteen to twenty years.
