Barossa Valley Estate Shiraz captures the distinctive elegance, finesse and vibrant fruit flavours of the Barossa Valley, one of the world’s most celebrated wine regions in Australia. Along the foothills of the Barossa Valley, a tapestry of ancient red clay soils combine with a warm and dry climate to create a unique environment for vines to develop fruit that has a vibrancy and depth of flavour. From the very beginning, the viticultural practices nurture the sustainable health of the vine that moderates vine vigour and yield, and produces small berries of intense flavour and distinctive varietal character.
In 2016, the warm, dry and calm weather provided good conditions for flowering and fruit set. Balanced vine canopies were supported by technically managed irrigation and a few well-timed summer rain events. Ripening progressed in consistent fashion, delivering fruit of great freshness, concentration of flavour, vibrant colour and ripe tannins. Fruit was destemmed and transferred into fermentation tanks for pre-fermentation maceration, then fermented at controlled temperatures for up to seven days to retain the elegant and vibrant varietal characters and create a soft tannin structure. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine was racked and underwent malolactic fermentation. It was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels to impart a softness and texture, and enhance the bouquet. There are notes of rich dark plums with a finish of vanilla and cedar spice.
