|Price: $50.00||add to cart|
Deep dark red garnet hues.
Toasty vanilla notes intermingled with spicey developed fruit aromas of fruitcake/Christmas cake. Very complex, multi-layered and nuanced.
A structured muscular wine. High tannin and oak is balanced by the intense fruit sweetness of concentrated Shiraz flavours typical from old vines. Generous dark fruit characters are complemented by spicy toasty flavours and ripe smooth tannins. The oak delivers persistence of flavour and length with a distinct vanilla/mocha flavour adding depth.
Lou Miranda Estate Old Vine Shiraz is sourced from over 100 year old Barossa Valley Estate vines (classified: Centenarian Vines) from the Winery Church block. The vines were planted in 1907 which means that they celebrated their 106th birthday in 2013. The fruit is carefully selected and hand-picked, and the old vine Shiraz typifies the generous varietal characters of the Barossa of plums and clove. Only small open fermenters and gentle handling of the fruit are used to process the grapes to ensure quality from vine to bottle.
This is a highly concentrated red wine. Intense flavour is matched with tannin and structure. Big and opulent, food matched perfectly with BBQ Rib eye or fillet steak.Cellaring With careful cellaring and patience 20+ years. We recommend decanting prior to serving
