Producer: Yalumba
Region: Barossa
Country: Australia
Type: Red

With deep soils ranging from fine sands to rich, red, chocolatey loams, the Barossa is home to some of the world's oldest Shiraz vines. The opportunity to craft a single wine from a "patchwork quilt" of soils, aspects, microclimates and cultures is simply too good to refuse. Through rigorous site selection, the winemakers unearth power, elegance, spice and structure - all the elements required to produce outstanding Shiraz. The wine was matured for eighteen months in French and American hogsheads (15% new oak) and 10% American Octaves with the balance in older hogsheads and barriques. Elegant and restrained with a supple, silky texture, masses of blueberry/blackberry fruit, and a minty lift offsetting the earthy, spicy notes.
