Rob & Les Shiraz
This wine is a dedication to all Grandparents and is named after two of ours – Robert and Leslie.
The 2017 harvest will be broadly remembered as wet and cold, with more than double the average rainfall recorded in the 2016 calendar year. However, the rain seemed to obey the calendar and dry harvest conditions meant that potential disease pressures were easily managed, and patience was rewarded with wonderful, fragrant aromatics and juicy, clean, bright flavours.
The cool conditions contributed not only to pure fruit on the vine but long, slow and controlled fermentation in the winery. A stellar vintage that will be wedged between two of the best we have seen and one that should cement the Barossa as the most consistent region in Australia.
Cellaring: A great value wine that will age beautifully over the next 5 – 10 years.
