Elderton ‘East Wing’ Barossa Shiraz 2015

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 05-Oct-2017
Dark, deep, black-hued red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is very fine and elegantly proportioned with intense and fragrant aromas of harmonious and integrated dark raspberries, blackberries, plums and liquorice, unveiling aromatic black florals, minerals and spicy, cedary oak. The nose shows a degree of restraint and style. Full-bodied, the palate is well-proportioned and finely concentrated with tightly bound flavours of dark raspberries entwined with black berried fruits and fragrant floral, along with spice and mineral elements. The oaking is soft with cedar flavours. The fruit is underlined by very fine-grained flowery tannin extraction and balanced acidity, and the wine carries to a slender, lingering, nuanced finish. This is an elegantly proportioned, concentrated Shiraz with black and red fruits, with fragrant florals, spice notes and minerals on a fine-textured palate with a slender finish Match with Middle Eastern fare over the next 5-6+ years. Fruit from the Barossa, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 20 months in American and French oak puncheons. Winemaker: Richard Langford. 17.5+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $40.00
