Lone Palm Vineyard Crossings Barossa Shiraz 2021
The three vineyards used here – from Nuriootpa, Ebenezer and Vine Vale – were all planted back in the 50’s and 60’s. They are picked and fermented separately, before blending, and then spending a further year in older oak, a mix of French and American. Dark magenta/purple in colour. There are some dusty earthy notes immediately apparent here backed by plums, mocha and cassis. The wine has good focus, finesse and poise, finishing with silky tannins and very good length. Lovely wine now and will age well so enjoy over the next six to eight years.
