Shiraz Langhorne Creek South Australia
A stylish young red by Lake Breeze, one of Langhorne Creek's most highly venerated wineries. This Bullant wraps the palate with lively fruit forward Shiraz characters, plummyness and spice, swathed in smooth chocolatey tannins. Beautifully balanced and representing exceptional value, Bullant makes for satisfying early drinking whilst offering the substance to see it through a spell of cellaring. As you're enjoying the wine, spare a thought for the fruit pickers and farmhands who danced in abandon amongst the vines, to avoid the menacing bullants!
Crafted from the vineyard through to the finished product with all the superior winemaking skill which Lake Breeze applies to its finest offerings. Grapes are selected and picked at optimum ripeness from good vineyards sited around the famous flood plains of Langhorne Creek. The well drained soils receive a deposition of silt during the annual floods, which ensures that the fertility remains at a high level. Maceration of the grapes whilst on skins has imparted to the Bullant an excellent array of varietal flavours, deep colours and silky textures. A ripe, full bodied Shiraz which has evolved over the course of fifteen months, whilst undergoing maturation under a selection of the finest oak.
Deep dark red in colour. Bouquet of ripe sweet plums, allsorts and liquorice with a touch of earthiness and the complexity of spice, freshly ground pepper, blackcurrants and cocoa with savoury meaty characters. Bullant is fully ripe yet youthful with a wonderful intensity and length of flavour. The palate is rich with black fruits leading to a long soft finish. Drinking well now alongside steak or gourmet snags.
