2017 SHIRAZ, Terra Barossa. Barossa, South Australia

Bin: 546
Alcohol Percentage: 14.5%

Old Bridge Rating: Just great value - all the richness and character you might expect if £5 more
Press Reviews: 16.5/20 - Raymond Chan, NZ Writer, April 2016
"Very full, near impenetrable, black-hued ruby-red colour with purple tints. The nose is fine in proportion with tightly-bound, penetrating aromas of ripe blackberry, plum and liquorice fruit, along with black pepper, spices and subtle, minerally reduction. This is soft and integrated. Medium-full bodied, the flavours of black berried fruits, liquorice and black pepper are detailed with spice and eucalypt notes along with some minerally, earthy reduction. The wine is elegant in presentation with a softly extracted, fine-textured core, balanced by fresh, lacy acidity. This has good drive and linearity, with concentration and presence, and carries to a long finish of black fruits, pepper and minerals. This is an elegantly concentrated, fine-textured Shiraz with black fruits and some minerally, reductive detail."
