DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

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 47th vintage is a fine example of the style we seek for our Bobbie Burns Shiraz. - Colin & Jules Campbell

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 favourable 2016 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.

Palate:

Deep, rich red. The nose has real intensity, with dark berries and plum perfectly integrated with notes of black pepper. A hint of subtle oak sits in the background. This wine is full bodied with powerful characters of dark berries and ripe plum fruit, beautifully balanced with layers of fine tannin and complementary notes of liquorice, ironstone and cocoa. A wonderful vintage that is drinking well in its youth but destined to reward careful cellaring.
