Shiraz Barossa South Australia
A mere thousand cases of Provident Shiraz are passionately small batch vinified each year, crafted to express the integrity of the land, endowments of vintage and virtues of mateship, the very soul of Barossa Valley. Grapes are open fermented in small batches, keeping every parcel separate. Gentle basket pressings extract the juices, a traditional style of vinification preserves the expression of old fashioned Barossa viticulture, the wines are unfiltered and unfined. Provident is an assemblage of Shiraz from a dozen vineyards, matured two years in a selection of well seasoned oak hogsheads.
Bright, deep red colour. Generous bouquet of chocolate, plum notes and blueberry with freshly ground pepper and hints of toasty cocoa oak. Ripe palate with prominent plum, dark cherry and blackberry flavours supported by toasty oak and gracious, mouth filling tannins. Layers of flavour you would expect from grand Barossa Shiraz, a wine of great depth, richness and complexity.
