3 Rings Barossa Valley Shiraz 2014

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 20-Sep-2016
Full, even, dark ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly presented, but well-concentrated, the fruit expression a little reserved initially, unfolding vibrant dark raspberries and blackberries, lifted by subtle, fragrant spice notes and aromatic black pepper, liquorice and cedar. Full-bodied, the palate features a well-concentrated, tight core of sweetly rich and succulent flavours of dark raspberries and blackberries. The fruit is melded with layers of black pepper, liquorice and Asian spices, and shows vitality. Fine-grained, flowery tannins provide strong grip and structure, and the palate flows with acid vibrancy and energy, carrying to a luscious and lingering finish of black fruits and spices. This is a full-bodied, vibrantly rich and succulent Shiraz with blackberry and raspberry fruit, and notes of liquorice, pepper and spices on a fine-textured, well-extracted palate. Match with Middle Eastern lamb dishes over the next 6-8 years. Barossa Valley fruit fermented to 15.0% alc. 5,000 cases made. 18.5/20 Sep 2016 RRP AU$16.00
