2017 Balladeer – Shiraz 750ml
$29.00 inc. GST
This wine exhibits a dark red core with a deep red hue. Elevated aromas of ripe black cherries and liquorice are trailed by hints of choc mint, vanillin oak and spice. Rich with an opulent chewy mouthfeel the palate is swamped with juicy black cherry and liquorice flavours underpinned by vanillin cedar, subtle hints of dark chocolate and spice. Ripe firmly built tannins. Excellent concentration with a long black cherry, liquorice and spicy vanillin oak aftertaste.
Spicy, stewed rhubarb nose heading towards savoury with lovely violet hints. The fruit driven style with more of the violet floral characters. Good balance of acid and tannins.
Matured for 12 months in French Oak Hogsheads. Our extended growing season resulted in an excellent flavour development in these grapes. Traditional winemaking techniques of open ferments and hand plunge have created a wine of great flavour and texture.
