Tasting Notes

The Colonial Estate Exile Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

Deep and dark centre with maroon and cherry red colour hue. Lusciously provocative with cherry and blackberry notes on the nose followed by layers of earth, dark plums, coffee and pepper. Still very youthful upon release bright and concentrated which reflects it will cellar well so suggest decanting well before consumption if drunk early. There is fresh cut plum, blackberry, juicy cassis, dried spice and melted dark chocolate notes. The underlying earthy character becomes more apparent when allowed to breathe; this also allows the layers of tannin to become more apparent whilst a slight touch of natural fruit acid and the solid core of well integrated oak will ensure longevity and development in the bottle.


The Colonial Estate Exile Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Bright and opulent purple in colour. The bouquet is elegantly proportioned with obvious varietal characters of ripe blackcurrant fruit infused with mint, fresh herbs, earth and plum. Wonderful density and depth to the aromatics, which reveal really profound Cabernet Sauvignon character. Fruit driven highlighted by pure plum flavour which is a highlight of Cabernet Sauvignon this year. The intense varietal characters along with some spice ensure a powerful mid palate. Lively with a great core and backbone, the oak is well integrated and compliments but doesn’t dominate. Well-rounded smooth tannins make this one of the most Moorish Cabernet Sauvignon we have produced. 


The Colonial Estate InExile Barossa Valley Shiraz Cabernet 2016

Deep opaque red to black in colour with vivid purple hues. Complex bouquet featuring alluring dark chocolate, forest fruits, fleshy plum with underlying earthy nuances, which give the immediate impact of a soft well, structured wine. The palate is voluptuous with a real rich velvety texture expected in top quality Barossa reds from an outstanding vintage. The mid palate is an assortment of Christmas pudding, black olives, freshly cut plum, oak and earth. A true reflection of Barossa Shiraz from a great vintage and it finishes with some classically fine Cabernet tannins, which linger and draw you into this seamless classic Australian blend.

Technical

The Colonial Estate Exile Barossa Valley Shiraz 2016

2016 was a stunning vintage we were blessed with perfect conditions, which ensured excellent quality fruit, despite yields being well below average. The bulk of the fruit was sourced from an old vineyard in Marananga, which is dry grown and includes a block of vines over 110 years in age. The vines that make up Exile were pruned severely and received a run of green harvesting finally producing just one and a half tonne to the acre maximum. The fruit was basket pressed and fermented in small 1 and 2 tonne fermenters, it was hand plunged daily, the wine was matured for an extended period on lees to maintain the fruit profile and ensure it’s a pure reflection of the vineyard. We matured the wine in Hogheads and Puncheon barrels for 24 months prior to being bottled with minimal filtration.


The Colonial Estate Exile Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Sourced from a small block in the Seppeltsfield region of the Barossa. The vines that make up Exile were pruned severely and as a result of this and minimal water they produce extremely small yields. Exile grapes are all hand picked and the grapes are selected in individual batches by winemaker and vigneron. The grapes are harvested then transported to the winery where they are de-stemmed and crushed individually to small static fermenters. Fermentation was brought on by the use of select yeast strains and the temperatures peaked at 28 degrees before chilling back to 20 degrees for the completion of fermentation. The fermenters were pumped over 3 times daily to ensure the perfect amount of colour and tannin was extracted from the skins. A small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon was allowed to stay on skins for a week of additional maceration after the ferments were complete. The batches were then pressed into new French barrels where they under went malolatic fermentation and are then aged for 18 months before final barrel selection, blending and bottled with minimal filtration.


The Colonial Estate InExile Barossa Valley Shiraz Cabernet 2016

The fruit for this blend was sourced from two vineyards one old vineyard in the Marananga and the other from the Seppelsfield region just up the road in the Barossa Valley. Both vineyards were severely pruned and as a result of this and minimal water they produced just one and a half one to the acre. The grapes were all hand picked and a small selection from the most western edge of the Shiraz block and a small selection from the dead centre of the Cabernet block were isolated by the winemaker and vigneron as they had such outstanding quality. The grapes were transported to the winery in the early hours of the morning to avoid the summer heat where they were again sorted then de-stemmed and crushed before being co-fermented in large wooden vats after extreme cold maceration. The wine had their malolactic in new French oak, and is thereafter in the same oak although a small parcel went into two new French barrels for aging. The best barrels were then selected after 24 months in oak to be used in the final blend and bottled with minimal filtration. In the winery the final barrels used were isolated from all other wines and we considered them to be inexile and hence the name was born.
