Magpie Estate 'The Black Craft'

Shiraz, 2015

Australia Red

Barossa Valley 75cl

This is a unique wine we (Magpie Estate) make for our importers Boutinot.
This is the 4th vintage and I reckon may well rival the much celebrated debut 2012. A cracking vintage. Coming from 7 different vineyards across the Barossa with a tiny amount of Eden Valley too.
At blending we added 5% Petite Sirah and 2.5% Grenache, both of which we felt made the wine more complete.
Black cherry, cassis, plum, plain chocolate and spice on the nose, some toasty oak too.
Really bright and juicy yet with a savoury depth. Red and black fruits, spice, a touch of liquorice, chocolate and creamy oak. A really ripe, balanced mouthful of classic Barossa Shiraz, big, yet fresh and very drinkable. Lovely now but will age for 5-7 years.
