The Barossa Valley is world famous for concentrated styles of Shiraz. Bogan Shiraz is well known to be a quintessential, full bodied style of Shiraz. The two Shiraz vineyards from which this wine is sourced complement each other well – The Marananga block provides intense, old vine produce with particular “blue fruit” offerings. The Nuriootpa block provides more “black fruits.” These two blocks have built this wines strong reputation and style.
The fruit was hand harvested on the 3rd of February and given 8 days on skins, pressed then put to barrel. Matured in 25% new French oak and the remainder 2 & 3 years old French oak for 13 months. No filtration.
Vineyard Soils - Schist rock over blue grey clay and deep compacted broken down schist with red sandstone pebbles on the surface along creek line (Marananga) / Loam over clay (Nuriootpa)
Vine Age - 2 vineyards. One planted in 1899 (Marananga) the other in 1965 in Nuriootpa.
'From estate vineyards planted 1899 and '65, matured in French oak (25% new) for 13 months. A powerful, distinctly savoury shiraz with an abundance of earthy black fruits on a palate that doesn't deviate an inch during its passage along the palate. Will flourish with decades in the bottle.'

'This comes off a couple of old vineyards (1899 and 1965) and hangs out in oak for just over a year.
Such concentration yet such slippery ease to the wine. It’s so potent in its dark fruit, fig and date, cola and anise, sweet oak and spice scents. Couldn’t help but let a little past the tongue – such smoothness, density and length, yet this countering effortlessness that speaks like a thick pillow in the finest satin cover. Moreish in its richness and hedonism, it’s a superbly balanced wine of lushness, layers, fine spicy tannin and depth. Nailed it.'
