Heirloom Vineyards Barossa Shiraz 2016 14.0% 12x75

Heirloom Vineyards Barossa Shiraz 2016 14.0% 12x75

93 points. ""A hearty, straightforward red with leather, blackberry and coffee-cream flavours mounting a sizeable case in its favour. Black fruit, softening oak, a churn of tannin and a warm finish."." James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion
This wine has an intense bright purple hue and an inkier royal red carpet colour closer to the center of the glass. The aroma is an astonishing and lifted brace of blackberries, spice and even a perfume like touch of blueberries. Pure fruit and spice that is not in any way overwhelmed
by winemaking artifact. The wine has a concentration of aromas that come from not over-ripe fruits. The smells change quickly in the glass and are fascinating to follow but the mouth beckons.

There is quite a remarkable entry to the palate. A seamless soft but structured shiraz, lots of blackberries again for sure but also a mid-palate dark chocolate spice that whooshes through the mouth that you want to slow it down and check it out. There is some cream and spice from the French Oak and an almost chalk like tannin structure but it's all about the pure fruit.
An extraordinary Shiraz from the Barossa that will cellar well - 10, 20, 30+ or more years.
