Z Wine ‘Rustica’ ‘Reserve’ Barossa Valley Shiraz 2013

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 27-Dec-2017
Dark, deep, purple-black hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose has full and deeply concentrated aromas of ripe blackberry and black plum fruit aromas along with notes of eucalyptus, black pepper, liquorice and spices. This has layers of detail and interest. Full-bodied, the palate is rich and vibrant with sweetly ripe fruit flavours of blackberries, black plums and nuances of boysenberries, entwined with eucalypt, black pepper and liquorice. The mouthfeel is luscious and plump, and balanced by underlying alcoholic vigour, and fine-grained tannin extraction, with integrated acidity providing energy. The wine flows with drive to a lingering finish of blackberries, plums, boysenberries and eucalyptus. This is a vigorous, rich and ripe Shiraz with blackberry, plum, boysenberry and eucalypt flavours on a plump, fine-textured palate. Match with barbecued and roasted lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 8-10 years. A barrel selection wine. Shiraz fruit from the ‘Zerk’ vineyard, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months in French and American oak hogsheads and barriques. 18.5/20 Dec 2017 RRP AU$34.00
