Fox in the Hen House Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 09-Oct-2018
Dark ruby-red colour with slight garnet tints on the edge. The nose is elegantly proportioned with some depth and rounded concentration showing ripe dark-red and black berried fruits with some minerally reduction, unfolding some liquorice and spice notes with aeration. Full bodied, the palate is soft and plush with a rounded heart of ripe blackberry fruit with black plums, spices and liquorice, and some reductive mineral and slightly bitter hints. The fruit is underlined by plenty of alcoholic power and drive, and the wines flows along a lightly extracted, supple palate line with some texture, leading to an elegant, slender, lingering finish. This is a soft and plush, ripe, rounded Shiraz with blackberry and plum fruit with liquorice and spices and a little reduction with some power and light grip. Match with barbecued red meats over the next 3 years. Barossa Valley fruit fermented to 14.9% alc., the wine aged 6 months in seasoned French oak. 16.0/20 Oct 2018 RRP AU$17.99
