Magpie Estate 'The Sack' Barossa Valley

Shiraz, 2015

Australia Red

Barossa Valley 75cl

The latest Sack and a slight departure in style. Largely down to demand this wine was bottled on May 2016, rather than in February the following year so around 8/9 months less time in oak. The rest is as largely as it normally is. From 5 vineyards, around 13% Eden Valley fruit.
Opulent nose with black cherry, plum and damson, with Asian spices and toasty oak. Aged in around 25% new French and American oak.
Classic Barossa Shiraz on the palate, big and bold with dark berry fruits, lots of spice and integrated oak. Really fresh and balanced though, so classic Magpie. Really appealing now, but sure to age for up to 10 years.
