This wine has a Deep Red colour with a purple hue. Wine delivers intense aromatic expression with boysenberry, ripe blueberry, plum and wild fruits, milk chocolate, notes of vanilla, oak spices, dark cherry and black olive. Ripe fruit concentration follows through to the palate. Full body style with black olive, cocoa, Asian cooking spices, confected notes, sweet fruits. Wine is balanced, fleshy and lively with integrated tannins. Shows a beautiful round and mouth coating palate. The pinpoint acidity gives it excellent persistence and length.
96 Point Rated Tyson Stelzer Halliday Wine Companion
Binder's fabled Heysen vineyard has delivered a fantastic and characterful Barossa shiraz in 2018, brilliantly capturing tremendous depth without sacrificing brightness or definition. Crunchy black fruits of all kinds play to a backdrop of fresh licorice straps, wonderfully bright acidity and fine tannin confidence. Good value.
2018 harvest was well and truly dry but produced quality with the help of water retained in the soils from rainy months leading up to vintage. Crops were well down on the bumper 2017 vintage, but only slightly below the long-term average. Summer and early Autumn were unusually dry, requiring supplemental irrigation to all vineyard sites. The low disease pressures associated with dry, warm conditions coupled with the cool night-time temperatures allowed the vines to produce fruit with exceptional character and flavour while being harvested at lower degrees of sugar ripeness, generally producing vibrant, balanced, lower alcohol styles.
