WillowsVineyard Bonesetter Shiraz 14.5% 6x75


Price: 209.00

Quantity:

"94 points. No holds barred on the bouquet, with a display of luxurious oak, Christmas pudding and minty, mentholated fruit. Rich and sweet in flavour, heavy in texture and armed with imposing tannins." James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion
This flagship from the Willows vineyard is a tribute to Johann Gottfried Scholz, who arrived in the Barossa in 1845 and found that his healing skills gained as a bonesetter in the Prussian Army made him a legend among the Silesian settlers. His sons and grandsons ran the Willows Hospital on the site for more than 100 years.
In the late 1960`s a small Shiraz vineyard was planted and became known by the family as the Bonesetter’s block. Selected premium parcels of Shiraz fruit from this mature vineyard are fermented in open fermenters, then basket press before ageing the wine in new French oak hogsheads for two years.
The 2014 shows typical Barossa voluptuous richness and structure, intense and powerful ripe fruit along with supporting fine tannins and stylish savoury oak. It is a multi-layered powerhouse that will reward those who cellar it carefully. Halliday rating 94 points...Drink through to 2030

"I often think of The Aberfeldy as the Clare Valley's Grange. Aside from the fact that it's from a single region and much less than one tenth of the price. It's a flagship wine that's easy enough to enjoy now, or much later. Blackberry, dark cherry, cloves, sage, coconut, dark mint chocolate, spice - it's all go. Full-bodied, lush smooth tannin, silky feel with rich fruit, backed with toasty spiced oak. Smooth powdery tannin carries the fiinish long and while there's a little warmth, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Does that make sense? Well,at least it sounds impressive. As is the wine. 94 points. Drink 2015-2028" Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, 20 Oct 2015

A great wine from a great vintage: the colour is dark brick red with purple hues. The aromas are of spicy dark berry fruits with just a hint of toasty vanillan oak.

It is drinking beautifully now and will cellar well for a decade.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - Decanter Magazine Australian Shiraz Tasting
"Smoky, struck flint aromas unfurl onto a plush, velvety texture in the mouth. It is a rigorous wine with dominating savoury flavours and a eucalyptus undertone. The alcohol is well hidden through a discretely supportive tannic structure. Drink 2017-2021"

Dense, vibrant colour is a feature of this brooding beauty, along with very ripe, sweet fruit, reminiscent of plum, blackberry and pepper on the nose. The palate is generous, ripe and mouth filling exhibiting berry and cinnamon spice flavours, along with oak-derived mocha overtones and harmonious, soft yet defined tannins.

95 points. "A beautifully and finely balanced wine is lusciously fruited, but retains its elegance through finely grained tannins and a torrent of black and red fruits. It is drinkable in the short term, but will improve as each year passes." 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,
