Zen Master 2016 Shiraz (Vineyard 1912)

Add to cart

  • 2016 NEW RELEASE VINTAGE

    This is the Zen Master, a Barossa Shiraz made from one hundred year old vines. As concentrated and complex as the vines are ancient, this is a wine to cellar for upwards of 10 years. And the wait will be worth it. Zen Master is the epitome of Barossa Shiraz as we have come to know and love it.

    The inky-deep purple colour catches your eye while floral characters, violet and rose petal, stream from the glass. Drinking Zen Master is pure joy. It is silky smooth, utterly seamless and perfectly balanced. Ripe, black fruit characters dominate the palate complexed by pepper spices and dark chocolate, a note of vanilla and hazelnut.

    This wine is a master of its domain. It will reward your years of cellaring, or show powerful expressive fruit as a young red.

    Fabulous Shiraz

    This is an absolutely fabulous red. I have only been drinking shiraz for a short while, being mainly a sauvignon blanc drinker. My husband and I went on a tasting to Atze where we sampled many wines,this being the last tasting. It was worth the wait. Absolutely beautiful drop that was a must to take home. Was saving it for our anniversary but couldn't help ourselves and ended up drinking it early. So of course bought another. Maybe this one will last for a few more months. We will see.
