Country: Australia, Barossa Valley
Tasting Notes: Deep purple-red in colour. The aromatics are very lifted and inviting displaying ripe plums, blackberry jam, Christmas cake, spice, florals, chocolate and subtle toasty oak. The palate is full-bodied and generous in rich dark fruit flavours. Tannins are evident but mild and integrated adding structure and depth. The ripe black fruits are complimented by classy oak barrel ferment characters adding another layer. This is a complex wine that is smooth, full-flavoured and is completed with a very lengthy finish. Nietschke is a fine Barossa Shiraz that will cellar gracefully in the medium term.
Varietal: 100% Shiraz (87% Shiraz,13% Petite Shiraz)
