Schubert Goose Yard Block Shiraz 2018


The fruit here is sourced from Block 2 on their Roennfeldt Road estate, which they call the Goose Yard Block. Fermentation is in five tonne open top fermenters with wild yeasts. Basket pressing into French oak barriques, one-third new with the remainder two years old and maturation over 20 months. Opaque maroon hue, this wine hails from an excellent vintage and shows its pedigree at every turn. The nose offers notes of blackfruits, tobacco leaves, cloves, tar, chocolate, black olives and sour cherries. Young and dense, but it is already beginning to exhibit some complexity. It is generously structured with slightly sandy tannins. Good focus and length, enjoy over the next fifteen to twenty years. A powerful Barossa Shiraz.
