Summary

The Barossa Valley is world famous for concentrated styles of Shiraz. Bogan Shiraz is well known to be a quintessential, full bodied style of Shiraz. The two Shiraz vineyards from which this wine is sourced complement each other well – The Marananga block provides intense, old vine produce with particular “blue fruit” offerings. The Nuriootpa block provides more “black fruits.” These two blocks have built this wines strong reputation and style.

Vinification

The fruit was hand harvested and given time on skins, pressed then put to barrel. Matured in 25% new French oak and the remainder 2 & 3 years old French oak for 15 months. No filtration.

Colour

Dark garnet.

Nose

Full ripe plums, black cherries, with hints of savoury spice and aromatics.

Palate

Fruit driven with smooth, supple tannins. Elegant and velvety with good structure and length. 

Notes

This wine has a long future, Bogan to the core – prospers for 20 years.
