2020 Halliday 4.5 star winery

Limited Barossa Shiraz

Limited Barossa Shiraz

The 2017 Antiquarian Shiraz was selected from the finest Barossa grapes and matured in French oak barriques for 24 months.  The wine is glorious upon release and will develop even greater complexity with cellaring for up to 10 years.

 

Vintage  2017 

Region   Barossa, South Australia 

Fruit   100% Shiraz  

Alcohol   15.5%   

Closure   Diam driven closure is selected for Antiquarian   to deliver a consistent result of the highest quality.    

Bottled   October 2019

Cellar   8-10 years – to 2027

The 2017 Barossa vintage experienced wetter than average pre harvest winter and spring, pushing back timing by up to a month.  Shiraz picking began in mid to late February and with good soil moisture and cooler temperatures, the vines looked healthy.  The fruit was allowed to ripen more slowly and this gradual development of fruit sugars created a sophisticated style that copes with higher alcohol levels.

Colour  Intense, saturated purple colour. 

Nose  The bouquet is liquorice, black pepper and ripe blood plums with hints of toasty oak. 

Palate   The medium to full bodied is bright and lithe with mulberry and cherry, black pepper, supporting toasting oak and a focusing thread of acidity.   Serve with slow roasted game, char grilled thick cuts of beef or tender beef cheeks and matured, richly flavoured cheeses.
