DESCRIPTION

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 destined to be very special in time.

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

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.
