A-Label Estate 2015 Shiraz (Case)

Add to cart

  • Major Award:

    Wine Enthusiast Top 100.

    This is a fruit-driven Shiraz with all the ripe black fruit flavours we’ve come to expect from the Barossa Valley favourite.

    As with all Atze’s wines, this has been made using the traditional artisan approach - destemmed without crushing, delicately moved to the fermenter to keep the grapes intact, hand pumped over and basket pressed to create a pure and expressive wine.

    The peppery spice, the vanilla of oak, the dark fruits and liquorice of the aroma flow through to the palate and wrap the rich tannins in a layer of flavour. You’re left with a lingering finish of cacao and the hope that there’s another glass available.

      Background/Story:

      This is a fruit-driven Shiraz with all the ripe black fruit flavours we’ve come to expect from the Barossa Valley favourite.                                                                         

      As with all Atze’s wines, this has been made using the traditional artisan approach - destemmed without crushing, delicately moved to the fermenter to keep the grapes intact, hand pumped over and basket pressed to create a pure and expressive wine.

      Vinification/Maturation

      Cold soaked on skins to extract colour and extended skin contact after fermentation for a total of 16 days adds structure and weight to the palate. Gently pressed and allowed to undergo secondary fermentation in Oak barrels.
      12 months in American and French oak barrels.

      Vineyard:

      Located in the iconic sub region of Koonunga and Ebenezer this is from one of the Barossa Valley’s most prized grape growing regions. The ancient soils in this area restrict the vines growth and give us a wine high in intensity and concentration.

      Vintage:

      2015 saw a warm dry summer with low yields and early ripening, full bodied Shiraz with black fruit characters.
