The Campbells of Rutherglen are a fourth generation winegrowing family dedicated to continuing a tradition established in 1870, of producing artisanal vintages reflecting the distinctive character of Rutherglen. Drawing on their intimate knowledge of local viticulture, Bobbie Burns is a traditional style of wine built around volumes of fruit exhibiting great finesse and subtle use of oak to compliment the full bodied Shiraz fruit flavours. From the eminent Bobbie Burns vineyard in Rutherglen, Shiraz is vinified on skins for a week in a mix of closed and rotary fermenters, followed by transfer to a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak barriques for a year's maturation.
Medium red with purple hues. Intense dark plum fruit with hints of ground spice and attractive regional notes of ironstone identify its Rutherglen provenance. Rich, mouth filling blood plum and mulberry on the front palate, fruit tannins and subtle cedar oak add freshness and structure, as firm, fine grained tannins add length to the finish. Delicious upon release, a long history suggests it will continue to evolve for many years.
