2015 Victors Old Vine Shiraz
The quality of the 2015 Barossa vintage was truly outstanding. Climatic conditions were generally favourable and a pre harvest rainfall event of nearly 20mm provided good vine health that carried the vines through the warm to hot days prior to an early harvest. This wine is deep in colour with aromas and flavours of wild berries, plumb conserve, rhubarb and pepper spice. Showing concentrated fruit on the middle pallet balanced with good acidity with cashew nut oak and a lengthy finish makes this Shiraz a remarkable wine. Drink now or long into the future.
