Dave Powell, of Torbreck fame, and son Callum know a thing or two about Barossa Shiraz and they have hit the bullseye with this 2019 release. Sourced from mature Barossa Valley vineyards, the majority located along the region’s North-Western ridge in Marananga and Seppeltsfield with a component also coming from Lyndoch Valley in the Southern Barossa. Fruit parcels are vinified separately in concrete vats before being basket pressed and assembled into large format 4,500 litre French oak foudres for 15 months maturation.

Exceptionally long and deep with serious power and wealth of rich fruit.

Inky black heart with a deep black dark red hue. Soaring out of the glass are liquorice and dark plum aromatics which are trailed by vanillin cedar, fennel, subtle scorched earth and spicy blackpepper notes. Rich and plush yet not over the top, the palate is a power house of liquorice, dark plum and fresh black cherry fruit. Well integrated smoky vanillin cedar, fennel, scorched earth and black pepper characters flow through on the back half. Magnificent power and depth with velvet like tannins, a lick of fresh acidity enlivening the very long and sumptuous aftertaste.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
Alc. 14.5%
