En Primeur Request

Wafting aromatics of raspberries and a little white pepper.  The mid-palate is extremely concentrated with intense red plum and a little pink marshmallow.  Acidity ties everything together.  Great value.

      Tasting Notes
      The Small Parcels range consists of limited bottlings of grape varieties grown in carefully selected distinguished sites, to highlight both the
      diversity and exceptional quality of South Australian winemaking.

      Shiraz is the jewel in Australia’s wine crown – widely (and successfully) planted in an array of regions, microclimates and soil types. Shiraz has proved itself an extremely versatile variety, producing full-bodied, ripe berry examples from the warm regions, and lean, spicy styles from the cool.

      Fruit for this wine was sourced from three vineyards across two subdistricts within the Barossa Valley - a parcel was taken from both the Schutz family vineyard in Stonewell and the Kalleske vineyard in
      Ebenezer. We also added a small portion of fruit from the rich clay soils of our own Ebenezer Resurrection Vineyard to complete the blend.

      Appearance: Deep inky red with purple flecks

      Aroma: Dark plum, spicy mulberry and rich chocolate cake

      Palate: Generous and ripe without being overpowering. Cherry fruits with reminders of toasted oak in the background. Primary fruit and oak characters are balanced neatly with natural acidity.

      Summary: A smart Shiraz, showing elegance and restraint, whilst still allowing the classic Barossa traits of power and richness to shine.

      “Beautifully put together. The fruit loads, the tannin rolls, oak slides into general contention and throughout everything remains bright, attractive, satisfying. Plums, earth, violets, cloves. Excellent buying.
