Sommelier's Notes

TASTING NOTES


Marananga, centred in the North West quadrant of the Barossa provides some of the Valley’s most powerful wines. The red brown clay loam soils with schists and siltstone yield flavours of jam and fruitcake, cardamom, blueberry fruits, cocoa powder with an undercurrent of roasted meats and crackling.


WINEMAKING


To ensure the unique character of this sub region is exemplified in the wine, small open fermenters and our basket press were employed to gently extract the wine. Aging in the finest quality oak for 18 months and selection of the truest barrels has created a wine that respects and expresses its place of origin.

Review by: Huon Hooke, The Real Review


Deep, dark purple/red colour. The aromas are floral and violet-like, with super-ripe aroma and flavour allied with slightly coarse, gritty tannins and a chewy finish. A very big, power-packed shiraz with grip and heft. It needs time. It will be very long-lived and richly reward cellaring. Drinking Recommendation: 2023–2038

This is immensely powerful and opulent, showing blackberry, dark chocolate, cured meat, cedar and violet aromas on the nose. The palate is equally impressive with outstanding depth and richness, wonderfully framed by chalky tannins, making the wine sturdy and persistent. At its best: now to 2038.

Review by: Mike Bennie, Wine Business Magazine


A powerful, full-throttle red with heft and architecture to the fore. It's potent in dark plummy fruit, rich spice, nuts and dried fruits, woody notes and a sweet lifted nougat-coconut-like character. Thick, unctuous and rolling deep on the palate, the wine finds excellent balance with its force and thunderous styling.

Medium deep crimson. Fresh blackberry dark chocolate brambly aromas with some herb garden notes. Lovely buoyant medium-bodied style with soft blackberries, mulberry berry fruits, fine supple velvety tannins and underlying roasted chestnut notes. Finishes chalky firm, fresh and juicy with a kick of liquorice. ...delicious classic modern Barossa Shiraz.
