The Hillside vineyard was established near the town of Lyndoch in the south western corner of the Barossa Valley in 1849 by the Springbett family. The first vines were planted in 1850 to Shiraz and Grenache and by 1860 two generations of the Springbett family had built a small winery, the second to be established in the region. Within a decade the property was a fully operation winery and cellar producing single estate wines, one of the first of its type in the Barossa Valley. Torbreck acquired the property in 2002 and set about resurrecting the old vines, planting new vineyards and restoring the charming historic ironstone buildings.
A very alluring blend.
Made from 92% Shiraz co-fermented with 8% Roussanne and matured for 14 months in a seasoned 4500 litre French oak foudre. Magnificent depth of colour displaying an impenetrable inky black core and a deep dark purple black hue. Intensely aromatic the nose offers up a combination of ripe dark plum, liquorice and blackberry scents which overlay vanillin oak, a hint of honeysuckle and spicy fennel notes. Rich, lavish and densely textured, voluptuous spicy dark plum, black cherry and liquorice fruits give the otherwise sturdy tannin structure a velvety feel. Elements of fennel, vanillin oak and pepper sit beneath. Outstanding power concluding long and decadent.
Cellar 5-6 years.
