Burge Family Winemakers Draycott Reserve Shiraz 2020


A barrel selection from the team’s oldest blocks of Shiraz, from their sites in the Barossa, this wine is only released when they believe the vintage is worthy. Extended period on skins, wild yeasts, thirty months in a mix of French and American oak, as well as no filtration and under cork. An opaque inky maroon, the oak evident, but well integrated, with notes of black fruits, aniseed, coffee grinds, bay leaves and cloves. The wine offers supple and sleek tannins, with good acidity. It is nicely balanced with a lingering finish and good linear structure. A wine with a decade or more pleasure ahead of it.
