Bobbie Burns Shiraz 2015

Tasting Notes

Deep dark red with purple hues.  The nose has real depth, almost brooding, with dark plums and blackberry perfectly integrated with the more elegant characters of black pepper and aniseed. A hint of spicy oak sits in the background. This wine is full bodied with mouth filling plum and mulberry fruit, beautifully structured with layers of fine tannin and complementary
characters of liquorice, ironstone and cocoa. A wonderful vintage that is drinking well in its youth but destined to reward careful cellaring.

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 barrels.

Cellaring

The favourable 2015 growing season has produced a Bobbie Burns Shiraz with incredible depth and concentration of fruit flavours. Our long history with this wine suggests it will continue to develop in the bottle for a further 10-12 years. Enjoy now with a Moroccan spice rubbed fillet of beef or over time with slow braised beef or lamb.

"A 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. This 46th vintage is a fine example of the style we seek for our Bobbie Burns Shiraz."   Colin Campbell
