POWERFUL RICH REDS
2015 SHIRAZ, 'Hales', Rolf Binder. Barossa Valley, S. Australia
"Our most widely distributed wine globally and a wine that represents classic Barossa Shiraz.
A collection of five Barossa Valley Shiraz vineyards contribute varying characteristics of fruit to this wine. The Shiraz makes up only 90% of the final blend, with juicy confectionary and red cherries hailing from a very small percentage of Grenache and estate-grown Mataro offering a deep, earthy background on the palate.
Twelve months maturation in a mixture of new American oak barrels as wells as two-year old American and shaved French barrels."
"Rolf Binder and sister Christa Deans, produce a range of highly acclaimed Barossa premium wines using fruit from their own estate and other Barossa vineyards. Rolf focuses on red winemaking, for which he has received international accolades, and Christa is recognised as one of the region’s finest white winemakers."
Their parents arrived from Austria and started making wine in the 1950s. The family now have over 200 hectares of their own vineyards.
Rolf also combines with Noel Young (wine merchant in Cambridge) to make the Magpie Estate wines, which we often sell as well.
