I’ll say this right away – some people won’t get this wine. It’s not your typical freight train Barossa Shiraz so if you are looking to be bowled over with fruit this is not the wine for you. But if you are searching for an honest Barossa red walk this way. And if you look a little deeper you will see why.
Fruit was sourced from cooler Barossa zones so it’s more in the dark cherry and lighter weight spectrum. There is also a nice touch of spice – cloves and star anise. It’s then quite fleshy and supple in the mouth which also provides great drinkability, with lowish tannins giving enough structure to support that fruit over the next three to five years. Team it up with some pinkish lamb backstraps, Moroccan style, to bring out its darker side.
