Shiraz Barossa South Australia
Every year, there was a single parcel which kept attracting the attention of Bethany winemakers. The fruit of a small property, less than five acres at the foothills of Barossa ranges, planted to vine sixty years of age, grown to classic Barossa red brown earths overlaying limestone. The small yields here deliver small berries with the most extraordinary flavour, whilst the breezes around the foothills ensure a gradual ripening of the finest tannins. Parcels that are worthy of inclusion are treated to a separate vinification and matured in the finest oak hogsheads.
Dense ruby red, purple hues. Ripe plums, mulberry and chocolate notes backed by oaky vanillin bouquets. Plum and briar flavours on the palate are tempered by toasty oak, a Shiraz of amazing concentration and weight, supported by a length of refined, well integrated tannins. The finish is endless, decant before serving and enjoy alongside the most exquisite fare.
