Earthworks Barossa Shiraz 2015

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 25-Nov-2016
Full, dark, deep, black-hued purple-red colour, near impenetrable. The nose is softly full with restrained aromas of ripe dark raspberry and blackberry fruit, with subtle notes of spices and black pepper, dark herbs and toasty-oak-like elements. Full-bodied, the palate is gently expressed with flavours of dark raspberries and blackberry fruit along with nuances of black pepper, plums and boysenberries and a hint of eucalyptus. Fine, firm tannins underline the fruit and the mouthfeel is enlivened by bright, refreshing acidity. The tannins and acidity carry the wine, revealing black floral elements on a concentrated, zesty line leading to a moderately lingering finish. This is an elegantly concentrated Shiraz with restrained dark raspberry, blackberry and plummy fruit with a firm, but fresh mouthfeel. Match with Middle Eastern fare and barbecued red meats over the next 4+ years. Fruit from the Barossa fermented to 14.5% alc. 17.5-/20 Nov 2016 RRP $22.50
