2017 BackVintage Reserve Barossa Shiraz - New!
Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

Spring in the Barossa was wet and cool and this slowed the growing season. The result was a welcome change from the early vintages of recent years. This flavoursome wine combines grapes from the warmth of the Barossa Valley and the cooler Eden Valley. It was matured for nine months in American and French oak barrels.

Colour
Mid-deep purple-red.

Nose
Good depth of red and dark fruits, with subtle vanilla from oak.

Structure / Palate
Rich, sweet fruit flavours and fine tannin structure. Characteristic Barossa intensity is offset by the fine tannins of 2017.

Although still youthful, the wine is fully ready to enjoy, but will continue to gain complexity through 2024. Try it with generously flavoured red meats or char-grilled vegetables.
