Description

Barossa Shiraz at its finest, showcasing the distinctive sub-regional characteristics of fruit selected from the Rowland Flat sub-region of the Barossa Valley. Bright and vibrant with dark red fruits and a plush opulence this is a wine approachable in its youth and the depth of flavour to age.

Sourced from a single vineyard planted in 1921 and grown on the banks of Jacob’s Creek. These vines are all you would expect of a vineyard approaching 100 years of age, knarled, twisted, and expressing their many years of hardship. Grown on a mix of deep alluvial soil and rocky red-brown soils, this terroir imparts a generous nature to these wines counterbalanced with extraordinarily fine chalky tannins; seductively pretty and powerful.

Review

From 1921 plantings comes this beautifully open-knit Barossan Shiraz with its generous layers of plush red fruits underlined by leathery spices and new oak, all well matched. A more traditional palate follows already showing savoury earthiness aged notes, with fruit pastille complexity. Solid tannins and juiciness to the acidity provide vitality leading up to a lingering, cedary finish. It feels close to peak although it will hold for some years to come

Floral, spicy, raspberry fruit, with dark smokey cocoa powder undertones.
Palate
Elegant fine tannins are chalky and seamless, and bright raspberry fruit is opulent and fine, leaving an impression of sophistication and restraint. Lovely and long.
