Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2009 “Zippy’s Block” Shiraz reveals notes of warm cassis, crushed blackberries, blueberry compote and black plums with underlying nuances of earth, black pepper, tree bark and salami. Very full bodied and densely packed with dark fruit and savory flavors, it has a seductively supple structure of velvety tannins and medium to high acidity, finishing long. Approachable now, it will reward cellaring and drink to 2020+.

Region

Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
