The 44th vintage of our classic Rutherglen Shiraz in magnum format

$60.00 CELLAR CLUB
$54.00

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

The 2013 Bobbie Burns Shiraz is from a vintage where everything worked in our favour, the long ripening period has produced wines full of flavour balanced with structure and length. 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 wonderful vintage that will age gracefully in the magnum format.
