Single Vineyard Barossa Valley Koch Shiraz 2016
Barossa Shiraz at its finest, showcasing the distinctive sub-regional characteristics
of fruit selected from the Rowland Flat sub region of the Barossa Valley. Bright and
vibrant with dark red fruits and a plush opulence this is a wine approachable in it’s
youth and the depth of flavour to age.

Bright vibrant, red.
Floral, spicy, raspberry fruit with dark smokey cocco powder undertones.
Elegant fine tannins are chalky and seamless,
bright raspberry fruit is opulent and fine,
leaving an impression of sophistication
and restraint. Lovely and long.

"It's from two different vineyards that are now about 100 years old. Power and poise with great palate texture and integration display a characteristic chalkiness. Although it was matured in 100 percent French oak the fruit intensity has absorbed it with style. It is open and generous with great poise that will handle further cellaring. Quite different from the Fabal vineyard shiraz and a good example of the diversity of style in the Barossa."
