A superb example of Barossa Shiraz which includes a 5% McLaren component and 5% Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cabernet is sourced from a younger vineyard and provides some additional backbone to the fleshy Shiraz components. The wine was aged in a combination of 80% French and 20% American oak of which 40% was new oak for a period of approximately 32 months. Rob Gibson has decided not to produce his 'Old Vine Collection' wines in 2007 so this wine benefits with 30% of the fruit being sourced from 100+ year old-vine material.
Totally opaque black dark red colour with deep dark red hue. The nose displays perfumed aromas of vanilla and mocha followed by some blackberry, liquorice allsorts and confectionary – a delightful sniff. Full bodied, extravagantly rich and very concentrated the palate displays voluptuous flavours of blackberry, dark chocolate and liquorice allsorts followed by some spice and vanillin characters on the back palate. Boasting outstanding depth and length, the wine possesses a silky smooth tannin structure which in combination with the opulent levels of fruit gives the wine a soft fleshy texture. Very long aftertaste of dark chocolate, ripe blackberry, confectionary and spice. An outstanding Shiraz from Gibbo who has in a relatively short time positioned himself as one of Barossa’s leading and most consistent producers. The value for money here is nothing short of extraordinary by Barossa standards.
