James Halliday – Deep crimson in the glass with aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant with a hint of baking spices, roasted capsicum, dried herbs, licorice, proving dough, blackcurrant pastille and earth. Mouth-filling and rich with a sapid twang to the acid line, plenty of jubey blackcurrant pastille notes and an earthy aspect to the finish. - Dave Brookes
About This Wine
Deep mulberry colour. Intense nose of blackcurrant/cassis, cherry and clove. Full-bodied and richly textured, very flavoursome with typical cabernet cassis, character, plum & hints of chocolate. Smooth and elegant with a long finish and delicate, soft tannins. Yum.
Barossa Valley Wine
The Barossa Valley wine region has historically and currently still is one of Australia's most prestigious premium wine producing regions. Located just 60km north east of Adelaide city centre, the climate there is very hot and dry which is perfect for the big bold reds the area is famous for.
A straight Shiraz is what Barossa is most well known for, however Rhone blends, such as Shiraz Cabernet are also very popular. While much less prevalent, white wines (Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon) are planted on the higher altitude hillsides where the ocean breeze cools temperatures down to a level suitable for producing these varieties as well.
Some of Australia's earliest Shiraz plantings can be found here dating as far back as the 1850's. While not always a guarantee of quality, it might be worth seeking out and trying one of the region's "old vine shiraz" if you haven't yet.
