- Closure: Cork
Winemakers, Tim Burvill & Marty O’Flaherty had a sense of excitement and anticipation very early on that the 2010 Barossa Babe would emerge as a blockbuster. The vintage was outstanding, and with fruit sourced from some of the oldest vines in Australia - up to 140 years old - no doubting, this is a red that deserves your attention. The opportunity to have access to grandfather vines is open to very few vignerons on the planet (Australia has some of the oldest). Burvill has sensed the privelige from the outset and this wine has become his personal project.
In order to evoke a sense of something unusual, Burvill employed design agency HeineJones to create the label. The result has been described as deliberately "incongruous" - a serious red packaged with a pink tinge and pink closure, finished with an engaging (perhaps predictable) image of the 'Barossa Babe' on the back label.
What's behind the quirky facade is a serious, big-boned red that given its viticultural pedigree stands as a bargain on the world stage. If full throttle South Australian styles are your preference, this will be one of the most prudent purchases you will make from this district in 2010.
“Hoochie mama!! This is one hot look’n Barossa Babe!”
Matured for 2 years in new French oak. Super saturated inky black colour with very deep black crimson red hue. The nose delivers an expressive aromatic profile of liquorice and blackberry as top notes followed by some toasty vanillin oak, confectionary and blackpepper. Boasting a huge core of sumptuous decadently rich fruit the palate is a super concentrate of liquorice and perfectly ripened blackcurrant along with nuances of dark chocolate and some toasty vanillin oak finishing with a peppery back palate. Velvet smooth tannins. Exceptional length and power with a very long imposing liquorice, blackberry, vanillin oak and blackpepper aftertaste. A classically proportioned Barossa Babe.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
