James Halliday – A deeply coloured and rich shiraz showing notes of ripe blackberry, black cherry and dark plum fruits along with hints of baking spices, brown sugar, licorice, rum and raisin chocolate, earth and clove. Thickly proportioned with tight sandy tannins and plenty of horsepower for those that seek it on the finish. - Dave Brookes
About This Wine
Deep dark red in colour. Lifted and intriguing nose of plums, blackberry, mocha, mint and spice on the nose. The intensely flavoured and richly textured palate, packed with black and red fruits and a touch of spice, is framed by fine silky tannins and has great length and balance. Seamless!
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.
