RedHeads Studio ‘Madame Frank’ Barossa Shiraz 2014

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 15-Dec-2017
Very dark, even, black-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rime with slight garnet hues. The nose is firm with good depth and concentration of ripe blackberry fruit with black pepper, plums, spices, unfolding liquorice and black mineral notes. This has very good intensity, and builds with aeration, unveiling eucalyptus and cedary oak. Full-bodied, the palate has vibrant and lusciously ripe sweet fruit flavours of blackberries, black plums, liquorice and spice, entwined with eucalypt, cedar and black earth and mineral nuances. The fruit is underlined by light, grainy-textured tannins with underlying alcohol power. The acidity is ripe and integrated, and the wine carries to a long, sweet and luscious finish. This is a classical, traditional Barossa Shiraz with ripe blackberry and plum fruit along with black pepper, spices and eucalypt on a grainy structured palate with underlying alcoholic power. Match with slow-cooked red meat dishes over the next 7-9+ years. Barossa fruit fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in seasoned French oak. Winemaker Daniel Graham. 18.0+/20 Dec 2017 RRP $31.00
