2015 Old Block is beautifully balanced and elegant. It opens with a fine fruit burst followed by a dense dark fruit core and a long even finish. The tannins are fine and polished, folding into layer after layer of flavour. It is an elegant wine with great complexity that will further unfold over time.
The Vintage: The 2014-2015 growing season began with good early winter rains followed by a dry, late winter and spring. Spring was warmer than average resulting early budburst and flowering. Summer days were mild with no extended heat waves, resulting in even ripening. Yields were below average, but produced exceptional quality. 2015 Eden Valley Shiraz is truly sensational with near perfect growing conditions resulting in sensational wines. The 2015 vintage Barossa Valley Shiraz displays both richness and depth, underpinned by dark lingering tannins.
