Bobbie Burns Shiraz Magnum 2014 (1.5L)

$70.00 CELLAR CLUB
$63.00

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Deep dark red with purple hues. In the magnum format the wine is showing primary fruit and youthful characters. The nose has real depth, almost brooding, dark plums and blackberry perfectly integrated with the more elegant characters of black pepper and aniseed, a hint of spicy oak sitting in the background.

Wine Making

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

A late frost in October 2013 resulted in lower yields and highly concentrated wines. This is reflected in the 2014 Bobbie Burns Shiraz which shows depth and concentration of fruit flavours inherent of our prized vineyards. 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.

Palate:

This wine is full bodied with mouth filling plum and mulberry fruit yet the palate is beautifully structured with layers of fine tannin and complementary characters of liquorice ironstone and cocoa. A wonderfulvintage that will age gracefully in the magnum format.
