Shiraz Barossa South Australia
G7 for seven generations of Barossa viticulture by the Scholz family. Establishing a mixed farm of livestock and orchards in 1845, Johann Scholz planted one of the first Barossa vineyards along the alluvial banks of Para River. An ideal site, invigorated by gully winds for a slow ripening of intense berry spice flavours in the grapes. Mostly Grenache with a fifth of Shiraz, defined by its succulence and aromatic allure, the softly textured tannins, decadent spice and wickedly wild cherry fruits of Grenache, the firm structure and palate length of Shiraz.
Vibrant crimson. Bucolic nose, earthyness, savouryness, currants and strawberry, olives, marketgarden and mint. Lively fresh red and black bramble flavours over a length of softly textured licorice tannins, beautiful wild cherry fruits roll off the palate, a big style of Grenache that lingers on a smooth, exquisitely balanced, tangy, fruit filled finish.
