    The Bachelor 2016 Shiraz

    94 Points James Halliday

    The vivid crimson colour that welcomes you to this The Bachelor Wine betrays its concentration and ripeness. Elegant and extremely classy French oak aromas greet your nose, along with sweet spices, cinnamon and cedar. 

    Flowing through to the palate, your taste buds are met by a mellow, rich wine with ripe blueberries and damson plum flavours.  Currently The Bachelor Wine is youthful and explosively rich with primary brightness melded with subtle oak toastiness.                                                                                                               
    As it evolves in the cellar I see layers of complexity revealing themselves and the opulence maturing into more subtle flavours.  It’s a show-stopper right now though!                                                                                                                     
    Altogether, The Bachelor Wine is extremely harmonious with a succulence, making it the perfect accompaniment for high-grade Wagyu steak or slow roast lamb.

    Eddies Old Vine 2015 Shiraz

    When you’re looking for the archetypal Barossa Valley Shiraz, look no further than this broodingly intense red. The core of this magnificent wine comes from three Old Vine vineyards planted by the Eddies family in 1912, 1951 and 1975.

    Pristine and youthfully deep, it’s virtually impenetrable, with the ruby red colour showing the power and concentration that low yielding, seriously old vines provide. A gloriously aromatic bouquet led by sweet spices and backed up by damson plum, dark chocolate and the most subtle of toasty oak.

    The rich, enveloping palate is lush and smooth with bright fruit; dark cherries and Christmas cake made all the more complex by the layers of spices: cloves, cinnamon and anise. As anticipated, the finish is uber-long with a savoury, umami note that leaves you wanting another sip.

      Background/Story:

      The Kalleske family has five generations-worth of experience growing Shiraz in the Barossa so when
      they identify a vineyard that they think is perfect for Shiraz it’s a comment worth listening to. In the
      mid-seventies Andy’s parents spotted just such a block and planted it. The Bachelor Shiraz is the result; named in honour of Bert Kleinig from whom they bought the block.
      Cut from the cloth that is classic Barossa Shiraz this vintage of The Bachelor is a great cellaring proposition, it’s easily got 15 years in it and likely a good few more. Currently it’s youthful and explosively rich with primary brightness melded with subtle oak toastiness. As it evolves in the cellar I see layers of complexity revealing themselves and the opulence maturing into more subtle flavours. It’s a show-stopper right now though.
