|Price: $89.95||add to cart|
STONEY CLAY SOIL - OWN ROOT STOCK - ROD & SPUR PRUNED
This handcrafted 2012 Barossa Valley Single Vineyard Shiraz has all the characters that make it quintessentially Barossa; Bold, robust and rich.
The vines are planted perfectly on a ridge on the Northern facing slopes of our family-owned vineyard in Rowland Flat. The stony clay soil help produce wonderful flavour and balance in the grapes as they ripen. The resultant fruit is extraordinary and allows a full-bodied wine displaying exemplary palate weight, length, structure and texture.
Further aided by being aged in medium toasted oak, this limited-edition wine demonstrates soft berry and plum characters which are complemented by spice and savoury notes. The concentrated aromas and flavours encompass rich berry flavours, spice, smooth tannins and chocolate - Unmistakably powerful, yet delivered with an elegant structure.
For those that can’t wait, the 2012 Barossa Valley Single Vineyard Shiraz can be enjoyed now or cellared for up to 10 years. We recommend decanting to allow its full personality to shine, and pairing it with a succulent venison steak or rack of lamb.

Wine Orbit, Sam Kim - 96 Points - A spectacular rendition of the variety, the gloriously expressed bouquet shows dark fruit, mocha, cedar, leather and black olive characters, leading to a concentrated palate that displays outstanding depth of flavour and awesome complexity. The wine offers opulence and density, as well as structure and harmony. At its best: now to 2027.
Patrick Eckel, www.winereviewer.com.au - 95 points - An impressive package both in terms of the bottle and label, but more importantly the wine within. A dark, brooding wine that shows the hallmarks of old vine Barossa Shiraz and the classic 2012 vintage with a nose that is bursting with plum, smokey oak and old leather. An earthy baseline of satisfyingly sultry dark berry fruits are interjected with oak spice before supple tannins wrap plum and blackberry fruit. There is an attractive sweetness of vanillin oak to finish that's matched by length of drying dark fruits. Optimal Drinking: 2017 - 2030. Date Reviewed: 09 16, 2017
