With good winter soil moisture, the vines grew happily through a warm spring and into the dry summer months. These conditions led to an even bunch set and healthy vine canopy. Through summer and into autumn, the Shiraz vines held their fruit in great condition, producing grapes with intense varietal Shiraz flavours.
Sourced from Barossa vineyards where the vines range from young (approximately 10 - 12 years old) to old (greater than 35 years). They are planted in a diverse range of sites and have slight variations in micro-climates and soil types, including red brown earths, sandy loams or dark clay soils. These variations contribute to the diversity of flavours in Samuel’s Collection Barossa Shiraz.
Deep, dark, purple red in colour. This is a generously aromatic wine with ripe plums, anise, lavender, currants and dark chocolate with complex notes of savoury spices and ironstone. On the palate purple fruits, liquorice and violets are followed by pepper and spice. This is a full bodied, generously flavoured classic Barossa Shiraz.
Pair with blue cheese crusted fillet mignon or sweet potato Wellington.
