Magpie Estate 'Russ'

Shiraz, 2017

Australia Red

Barossa Valley 75cl

A new premium Shiraz for us, and largely down to the Smalltown vineyard in Ebenezer that we bought in October 2016.
This wine is largely from the best rows of 1992 planted Shiraz, dry grown and low yielding.
We blended in some Western Ridge fruit too. Aged in larger format oak. mostly new American with a percentage of new French oak and older barrels.
Enticing spicy nose, black and red fruits, and a good whack of oak too.
Richa and full on the palate, plum and black cherry, really dense yet bright with some toasty new oak adding a touch of vanilla/coconut. A baby, but already really supple and texturally approachable. Will certainly age for a few years, but already very approachable.
