A RICH, CONCENTRATED WINE THAT BRINGS TOGETHER DISTINCTIVE ELEMENTS OF BOTH LANGHORNE CREEK AND THE BAROSSA VALLEY. DARK AROMAS OF MULBERRY, BLACKBERRY, LIQUORICE AND SPICE FOLLOW THROUGH TO A SUPPLE, GENEROUS PALATE WITH CHOCOLATEY TANNINS.
Our winemaking approach is fresh and uncomplicated, allowing the fruit to speak for itself. Gentle handling during fermentation on skins in small, traditional open fermenters, has allowed for optimum extraction of flavour and fine, balanced tannins.
VINEYARD SOURCE: Shiraz was selected from two of our most cherished, longstanding grapegrowers––from the renowned Metala Vineyards of Langhorne Creek and Kurtz Vineyard in the Light Pass sub-region of the Barossa Valley.
GRAPE VARIETY: Shiraz
MATURATION: Matured in seasoned, spicy oak to enhance character, structure and depth of flavour.
WINE ANALYSIS: Alc/Vol: 14.5% | Acidity: 6.6 g/L | pH: 3.43
PEAK DRINKING: Drinking well on release or will soften and develop further complexity with careful medium term ageing. And, as Langhorne Creek Shiraz is known for its graceful long term ageing, those who like a more mature wine style could put it away for 10 years or more.
FOOD MATCH: Perfect with a juicy chargrilled Argentinian T-bone with chimichurri sauce, slow-roasted lamb shoulder with root veggies, or eggplant parmigiana.
COLOUR: Deep dark red with purple hues.
NOSE: Dark fruit aromas of mulberry, blackberry and blueberry, with hints of liquorice and spice, and the beginnings of cigar box complexity that will further develop with age.
PALATE: The palate is full-bodied, with plenty of generous, supple fruit, intensity of flavour, and layered, chocolatey tannins.
