Bobbie Burns Shiraz 2010

Tasting Notes

Medium red with purple hues.  Intense dark plum fruit with hints of ground spice and attractive regional notes of ironstone that underline the wines origins.  Rich, mouth filling blood plum and mulberry fruit on the front palate. Fruit tannins and subtle cedar oak add freshness and structure to the mid palate and provide firm, fine grained tannins and length to the finish.

Winemaking

After fermentation on skins for six to seven days using closed and rotary fermenters, the wine was subsequently aged for a period of 12 months in a mixture of new to three year old premium French and American oak.

Cellaring

Our intent with Bobbie Burns Shiraz is to create a wine that drinks well from release, but careful cellaring has allowed this wine to mature gracefully. Drink over the coming 2-3 years with slow braised beef or lamb dishes.

"A Campbells and Rutherglen icon – showing the true power of the Rutherglen shiraz fruit with the tannin structure for longevity. For more than forty years our Bobbie Burns Shiraz has enjoyed a reputation for being of consistently high quality. Our 2010 vintage is a fine example of the style we are seeking."   Colin Campbell
