2012 Mader Reserve – 5 Stars
Gumpara 2012 Mader Reserve Shiraz received 5 stars Winestate Magazines “Annual Edition 2015, New Releases, Best Wines of 2013, 2012”
Optimum ripening conditions during the 2012 Barossa vintage resulted in this Shiraz displaying deep colour and outstanding fruit concentration. Partial barrel fermentation in new French oak hogsheads has contributed to flavour, complexity and tannin structure. This rich full body Shiraz exhibits bountiful Barossa chocolate, dark berries and warm pepper spice.
This wine will benefit from careful cellaring and has the potential to build complexity with extended bottle age. Age to 15 + years.
