Barossa Valley Shiraz – And It’s One Of The Best…

These don’t come along every day. What you’ve got here is one of the old guard- a Barossa Shiraz that’s been demonstrating what the style is all about for decades now.

The Bottom Line

  • 95 points from James Halliday
  • 95 Points from Huon Hooke
  • Will cellar for decades to come!
  • From the fantastic 2012 vintage
  • The quintessential Barossa Shiraz – big, ballsy and full of flavour
  • A household name, from one of the pioneers of the Barossa

Exactly what you’d expect from a top-shelf label like this in one of its strongest vintages on record. This 2012 is going to be spoken about around dinner tables well into the future.

Already a good few years in the bottle now, this classic Barossa big boy is as bold and full of concentrated red and black fruit power as you’d expect, but its real strength lies in what is an obvious ability to last decades from now in the cellar. Halliday wrote that the similar 2010 vintage will drink until 2045. He’ll be 107 years old. And this one’ll be up there with it.

The maker is one of the Barossa stalwarts- a winemaking operation with more than 150 years history in the valley, and a serious eye for quality fruit.

The normal price-tag on a bottle of this baby? $100. This 2012 is worth every cent of that too, but we’ve managed to pick up a few six packs of them at a very generous discount. Now it’s your turn to add a few to the bottom row of the cellar.

Tasting Notes

Drink Now Until
Barossa Valley
Matured in seasoned large French oak vats (60%) and new and seasoned French and American oak barrels for twenty months.
Deep purple/red.
Dark cherries, blackberries and characteristic pure dark chocolate with hints of savoury spice.
Full and powerful with rich, plush, varietal flavours of cassis, plum and dark cherries. Plush soft and coating tannins linger leaving flavours of dark chocolate and mulberry to flood the back of the palate.
Winery Information
The 2011/2012 growing season began with good winter rainfall which set up the vines well. A warm spring in the Barossa generated an early budburst while wind during flowering and a cool summer attributed to both reduced bunch and berry size. The combination of mild days and cool nights during the ripening period underpinned the development of Shiraz with high levels of natural acidity, resulting in exceptionally well- balanced fruit with bright rich varietal character.
