A SINGLE VINEYARD BAROSSA VALLEY SHIRAZ WITH DARK, AROMATICS OF MULBERRY, BLACKBERRY AND BLOOD-PLUM BACKED BY COMPLEX SECONDARY CHARACTERS, SPICY OAK, LIVELY FRUIT AND SILKY TANNINS. A LUSH, SUPPLE MOUTHFEEL WITH A FINE, STRUCTURAL LINE AND LINGERING FLAVOURS.
Our Vineyard Selection Shiraz celebrates the Barossa Valley and everything that makes it great – its renowned vineyards, its dedicated grape growers and its remarkable wines, made simply to enjoy.
To show off what the Barossa does best, we chose Shiraz from the Sonntag Vineyard at Stonewell. Both the Sonntag family and the subregion of Stonewell are synonymous with the longstanding viticultural tradition of the Barossa. The soils, climate and microclimate of the vineyard give the wine its distinctive, vibrant colour, intense flavour, and fine, silky tannins.
VINEYARD SOURCE: Shiraz was sourced entirely from the Sonntag Vineyard in the Stonewell subregion of the Barossa Valley.
GRAPE VARIETY: Shiraz
MATURATION: The wine was matured in predominantly seasoned oak to soften and develop without picking up excessive oak flavour, with 25% matured in new French hogsheads to enhance character, structure and depth of flavour.
WINE ANALYSIS: Alc/Vol: 14.5% | Acidity: 6.3 g/L | pH: 3.44
PEAK DRINKING: The structure and balance of this wine will reward medium term careful cellaring. But it also depends on what you like. Drink it young for those bright, juicy Barossa Shiraz flavours, or tuck some away for more developed, complex characters.
FOOD MATCH: This Shiraz is crying out for juicy chargrilled steak or succulent lamb cutlets. Or try it meat-free with barbecued field mushrooms, roasted capsicums, or gnocchi with black olive tapenade.
COLOUR: Inky dark red with magenta hues.
NOSE: Aromatic dark fruit characters of mulberry, blackberry and blood- plum, with hints of chocolate, anise, black olive and charcuterie.
PALATE: A wine of generosity and elegance, with dark, lively, fleshy fruit backed by beautifully integrated spicy oak and silky yet defined tannins. A lush, juicy, supple mouthfeel with a fine, structural line and lingering fruit flavours.
