Deep garnets and black core, this wine has lifted with some tar and cordite. Quite a lifted black pepper hint and backed by ripe cherries. A full bodied palate with great acid and tannin balance. The core is of spiced dark fruits with rich oak complexity.
Ben Murray has been making our Barossa Shiraz now for many years, typically harvesting from the family-owned and operated vineyards of Marananga. Marananga, in the famed western sub-region of the Barossa Valley, is superb for growing Shiraz, with deep rich soils interspersed with limestone shelves. The 2020 vintage was noted by the harsh growing season at the end of a three-year drought. Yields were below average, but the growing conditions had a marked effect on the ripening of the grapes and resulted in the development of a powerful wine.

Hand harvested and crushed. Fruit fermented and vinified for over 25 days allowing extended skin contact, daily cap plunging and gentle pump overs to ensure total coverage of juice through the must. Gently basket pressed after vinification. 18 months in barrel for maturation, in new and old French and American oak barriques. The wine was bottled at optimum maturation and shows great potential for ageing.
