Z ‘Julius’ Barossa Valley Shiraz 2015

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 27-Dec-2017
Full, dark, deep black-hued purple-red colour. The nose is full and deeply packed with sweetly ripe, aromatic blackberry fruit with notes of boysenberries and plums, subtle liquorice and black pepper, and spicy, lifted oak. Full-bodied, the palate has rich, deep well-concentrated and vibrantly sweet flavours of ripe blackberry fruit layered with plums, boysenberries and dark raspberries. The flavours form a deep core packed with spice, liquorice and black pepper notes. This is fulsome and supported by plenty of underlying tannin structure and balanced acidity. The palate carries the richness, depth and power to a long, luscious finish. This is a fulsome, vibrantly rich and lusciously succulent ripe-fruited Shiraz with blackberry, plum, boysenberry and dark raspberry flavours along with liquorice and spice and plenty of structure. Match with roasted game meat dishes over the next 9-10+ years. Shiraz fruit fermented to 14.8% alc., the wine aged 24 months in 20% new American and 20% new French oak. 202 dozen made. 19.0-/20 Nov 2017 RRP AUS$60.00
