2013 BackVintage Reserve Barossa Valley Shiraz
Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

The growing season was generally warm and dry, leading to a very early harvest of strongly coloured, ripe reds. This full-bodied Shiraz was made from grapes sourced from two vineyards at opposite ends of the Barossa, near Angaston in the north and Williamstown in the south. It was matured for 16 months in 50% new French and American oak with the balance in 3 year old barrels.


Tasting Notes

Colour
A deep purple-red

Nose
Great depth of ripe, dark berried fruit with hints of vanilla and nutmeg from oak

Structure / Palate
Rich blackberry and plum flavours. Full body, finishing with firm, balanced tannins and very good length.

We have selected this as a Reserve wine for its generous flavour, excellent structure and potential to develop over many years. It will soften and gain cedary complexity past 2022. It’s a great accompaniment to flavoursome red meat dishes, particularly casseroles and lamb shanks.



James Halliday has awarded this wine 93 points - "highly recommended". A wine of great quality, style and character. Worthy of a place in any cellar.
