Fruit for the 2010 Reserve Shiraz was selected from quality low yielding Barossa Valley vineyards, fermented on skins for 11 days and then matured in a combination of new and aged American oak hogsheads for 3 years to add additional complexity and finesse.
Aromas of dark plum and chocolate combine perfectly with flavours of blackberry and liquorice to produce a balanced full bodied wine with structure and length.
Drinks Beautifully now and will reward cellaring for a further 15 years.
There are only a limited amount of 2010 Reserve Shiraz held as museum stock at Gomersal Wines and it is not generally available. I have been lucky enough for Barry to sell me a few more for Barossa Reserve customers.
