2015 Terra Barossa Shiraz

Comments

Deep red with purple hues on release. Lifted plum and stone fruit with blackberry andĀ spice aromas. A medium to full bodied wine with excellent fruit, a hint of spicy oakĀ and a plush tannin finish.

 

Vinification Notes

The grapes are crushed and de-stemmed into fermenters. Yeast is added immediately once in fermenter and the ferments are pumped over twice daily to maximise colour, tannin and flavour extraction. Cooling is used to ensure ferment temperatures remain in the 22-25 degree Celsius range which will allow the fruit to display maximum fruit expression. Pressing then occurs approximately seven days after crushing and the wine is then put into French oak for maturation for up to 12 months.

Vintage Notes

2015 Vintage was characterised by a dry period extending from July to April, together with warmer than usual temperatures during Spring until mid January which advanced maturity on lower yielding vines. Mild temperatures from Mid January slowed maturities concentrating flavour and intensifying colour development.

Fresh earth, toasted cumin and black tea flavors are dark and dense, with black licorice and thick tannin's forming a backdrop to the blackberry and plum compote notes. Persistent on the finish.
