A relative newcomer to the Barossa wine scene, long-time Barossa enthusiasts Trevor and Marilyn Hatch purchased an established vineyard in Eden Valley’s Keyneton region in 2007. The long-time Sunshine Coast residents made many visits to the Barossa Valley over the years and fell in love with the wines so much so that they purchased the historic Tanunda Cellars bottle shop in the late 1990’s. Trevor also became involved in wholesale and retail sales of Barossa wines in Queensland. With a farming background in avocado and persimmon, Trevor decided to combine this with his experience and knowledge of the wine industry and purchased a vineyard to produce his own wine. The property, a working vineyard for well over a century boasts what is believed to be some of the oldest Riesling vines in Australia - planted back in 1896. The Shiraz vines planted in in the 1930’s and 1950’s have previously supplied fruit that has gone into making Yalumba’s flagship Octavius Shiraz.
The Zip Line Shiraz fruit comes from a mixture of vines planted in 1927, the mid 1980’s and some younger vines planted in 2008. Dense pitch black heart with a deep dark red black hue. Wafting from the glass with plenty of potency are aniseed, black cherry and blackberry scents trailed by fennel, smoky cedar and peppered dried meat notes. Rich, full and fleshy textured, the palate is well endowed with liquorice, black plum and black cherry fruits which overlay a lingering toasty oak, earthy fennel and pepper backdrop. Velvety yet sculptured tannins with a meaty feel to the medium to long conclusion.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
