About This Wine
A dry 2020 produced a low crop. The foothill vineyard in Angaston showed good canopy to protect the small intense fruit making this 2020 a deliciously showy mid weight fruited release of deliciousness in spades.
Made via 20% whole bunch wild yeast ferment in small open top fermenters, soft pump overs, basket pressed to barrel to complete ferment for 17 months and bottled unfiltered.
A truly charismatic red table wine with high perfumed dark red spiced summer fruits that runs through the palate with blood plum, black spice and licorice blackstrap, the finish generous, fresh and lively with lovely super fine tannins.
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.
