Bobbie Burns Shiraz 2013

$34.00 CELLAR CLUB
$30.60

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Deep dark red with purple hues. 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 barrels.

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 6 years. Enjoy now with a Moroccan spice rubbed fillet of beef or over time with slow braised beef or lamb.

Palate:

Restraint and power. This wine reflects the excellent vintage from when it came - full bodied with mouth filling plum and mulberry fruit. An intense mid palate which is beautifully structured with layers of fine tannin and complementary characters of liquorice ironstone and cocoa.
